London Clay Birds would like to introduce to you......
'Special Occassion Birds'
This pair of birds are made using London clay and hand painted white, for your special day! They have a hole underneath so that they can be placed on a cake if need be.
London clay is a marine deposit from the Palaeogene period, 50/60 million years ago, back when a warm tropical sea covered London. Geologically, the clay belt stretches across much of the Southeast of England and was a contributory reason the London Underground tunnels were easily dug. And interestingly, the clay beds supported the the London brick making industry throughout the Victorian era until the 1960's - so I suppose you can say it is what London is made of.
The clay I use is excavated from where a Victorian Workhouse once stood in Islington. Fascinated by recent local history as well as the clay’s pre-historic origin I sculpt each bird in the image of our city's little birds.
Each bird has it’s own unique charm. These very tactile objects are lovely to hold and have a calming quality.
A little piece of London itself.
Presented in handmade light blue bags.
