    Beautifully made and richly coloured, these hand thrown ceramic bird feeders are practical, as well as lovely garden decorations. Completely frost proof.

    A fantastic gift for anyone with even the tiniest garden. I am excited to have cracked the squirrel problem. They can't climb down the very fine steel cable, so the little devils are finally defeated! The small holes mean that large birds cannot muscle out the small birds in the feeding competition. They can be hung from any garden structure or tree, giving the birds complete protection from local marauding moggies. Being stoneware they are frost-proof, so can stay out in the garden all year round. This means they are particularly valuable in providing colour in winter.

    Usually available in Chun Blue and Ash Green.Only blue in stock at the moment. More Green coming though, please contact me if you'd like to order a green one.

    Made in frost-proof stoneware, they can hang outside all weather, providing interest in the garden all the year round. They need no special maintenance and can be cleaned with any cleaning product. Ceramic is extrememly robust and won't rust or wear in any way. A NEW feature added in May 2018 is the squirrel proofing. I searched on the net and found an article in an american journal explaining that squirrels can't cling on to very fine wire, so I searched around and found a very fine, extremely strong (it can take 30kg!) cable. It is stainless steel and lovely and flexible, so easy to hang. Of course, being steel, the squirrels won't be able to chew through it either. An added bonus, I think, is that the wire is so fine, the feeder appears to float without means of suspension, which is rather pleasing.

    None ready for shipping just yet, but will be ready by the end of October from the next firing.


    H19 x W13cm approx 500g Dimensions vary, as each is individually hand thrown.
