Last Monday we featured the work of designer and ceramicist Michele Quan, a Brookyn-based artist who, among many other beautiful things, creates birdhouses out of stone and hemp with detailed ink-like designs. Birdhouses are one of those simple pleasures that we see maybe in our parents' backyard but may not think of ourselves.
We went on a search for birdhouses that look less like bright plastic creations and more like hanging pieces of art. Quan's pieces are a great place to start! Below are other pieces, along with a DIY perfect for a summer project.
