Wee Bird on a bauble
This garden ball is made of high fire porcelain, thrown on the wheel. The bird is modelled freehand, and the decoration is hand painted and carved. Each ball and bird is unique.
The ball has a ring inside the top to fit a support that is 3/4 inch diameter, such as pipe, tube or bamboo etc. The ring is there to hold the ball upright. A similar support such as rebar will work but might need some tape around the end to have a snug fit.
Protect from impact. Bringing it inside in winter is recommended in areas of heavy snowfall or deep frost less than minus 10, due to possiblity of impact related accidents!
