Perky birds are handbuilt in white stoneware clay and each one is unique with it's own character. Folks love the fact that they are unique and often like to name them!
After I have made a hollow clay ball I shape the bird with various tools. Then I paint the bird with coloured slips and sgraffito some patterns. Once the bird is dry it is biscuit fired and then I can decorate it with coloured underglazes. The whole thing is finished off with a glossy transparent glaze and stoneware fired. Sizes vary slightly but on average the perkies are about 8cm long, 6cm wide and 7cm tall.
You could put these birds in the garden and they should survive all but the most severe weather. Personally I keep mine safe and sound on the mantlepiece to enjoy.
This little cutie is predominantly a lovely duck egg blue with lemon and lime highlights.
The birds come in their own straw filled presentation box making them ideal for gifts.
