2018 has been proclaimed “Year of the Bird,” according to the Audubon Society and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and many others in order to celebrate the centennial of the passing of the Migratory Bird Act. Back when Congress passed cool acts, the Migratory Bird Act helped to protect birds by protecting the environmental corridors through which they needed to migrate. Anyway, so I’m just a potter, but I love birds AND I love plants. So I’ve been putting more and more birds on my botanical pottery, especially in 2018, The Year of the Bird. This piece has two almost too-cute owls on it, but they are decidedly dedicated to protecting whatever secrets you decide to put in the jar. SOLD—ORDERS ONLY. 9″ tall by 4.5″ diameter.
