These colourful ceramic bluetits ars are sure to add a pop of colour and some shabby chic charm to any room- from lounge to garden room, to baby's nursery.
The finished size is 7.5 cm across at the widest point, each is approx 5 mm thick and unglazed on the back. They hang on 9mm wide blue ribbons.
They were inspired by the bluetits that come and hunt for insects in the planters outside my studio window. Made with loving care to my own design in my artist's studio, using white earthenware clay.
They were bisque fired, then individually hand-painted using appropriate underglaze colours before being glazed with a clear, non toxic glaze. The glost firing at 1130 degrees C transformed the pieces into durable birds with a beautiful, shiny finish.
Being individually hand painted, the birds you receive may vary a little from the ones illustrated. Each pair will be threaded on matching ribbons of blue or turquoise.
(If you would prefer a pair of 2 different types of birds,I'm happy to do this- just let me know!)
You're sure to find the perfect place to hang your bluetits for the whole year round- from the branches of a pot plant, the knob of a cupboard or drawer, on a picture hook..... But when it comes to Christmas they can go on your tree.
