Birdfeeder (pumpkin & gourd)
Not squirrel-proof, but so cute it doesn't matter. This small birdfeeder can be hung by the handle of the mug, sideways (so that the handle is at the top) and then filled with birdseed. Birds can perch on the gourd (the bottom "half" of the piece) and give you something new to talk about with your fellow feeder friends!
This piece is glazed inside and out, is suitable for all kinds of weather, and while awkwardly shaped for dishwashers, is safe to be washed in one (it might be easier to hand-wash it though, so it doesn't knock against anything during the dishwashing process).

HaldeCraft ceramics begin life as slip-cast, hand-built, or wheel-thrown pieces and then are painted and glazed and put out into the world, all by the hands of one person. I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make incorporate now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio with confidence, mindfulness, and joy.
