A charming oriole bird with unique white and black striped feathers crest stands on vintage croquet ball. We love the moon and star on its red breast, and the shooting star as its wings! Lots of metal pieces as adornments, such as vintage metal tape measure segments, one-of-a-kind vintage advertisement... You are sure to be enchanted!
A fascination with birds and antique found objects is what inspired Tori & Jim Mullan for this collection.
In 1991 original decoys were passed on to them and they decorated Jim’s studio for years. In 2006, Jim decided to go through his boxes of old and damaged birds and have some fun. He combined his love of mixed media with his vast collection of found objects and a new 3-D art form was born.
Each bird is hand made in their Florida studio using old carvings as their models. The unusual relics they use such as croquet balls, binoculars and old toys give each inspiring bird their own personality.
