Each birdhouse is carefully constructed with screws, brass nails, copper, various glues & epoxies. Some are sealed with lacquer, some are not. For versatility, all birdhouses can either stand freely or hang from the top or back. I use a wood burning tool to freehand the botanical decorations, to add more depth & interest. As a tribute to my mom, most birdhouses are adorned with a butterfly. She loved butterflies! Although each birdhouse is completely functional, most are kept indoors to be admired as beautiful works of art.
