Best Birdhouse EVER!!!
My friend Sue had her wood sculptor make this luxurious birdhouse to adorn her already gorgeous garden.
Made with cedar, with hand carved cedar shingles, and enough room to house many families of local birds, this birdhouse stands almost 5 feet tall, not including the 'penthouse'...
What beautiful craftsmanship! The branch leading to the penthouse is encrusted with stones. As you see details on pictures below, you may recognize trimmings courtesy of other local animals!
As I understand it, this is the first whimsical piece of work by this serious sculptor. I would give him an A for his first try, wouldn't you?
This birdhouse has been on my mind since I saw it today. A house befitting the delicate, graceful birds (works of art themselves) which will someday inhabit it.
