Aviologie Wooden Birds
Anna & David create unique birds derived from a meeting between indigenous folk art and western aesthetics. From their home on Vancouver Island in Canada, surrounded by the sea, mountains and and abundance of birds, they have much to inspire them and offer designs that bring simple yet refined examples of natures greatest inspiration.
FAIR TRADE: Working closely with carving families in Indonesia, they draw on the villages centuries-old techniques to realize beautiful products. Using Albesia and Coffee wood, these fast growing timbers come from sustainable farming practices for continued harvest and regrowth.
The birds are beautifully hand painted and finished with a light wax to produce a subtle sheen that completes each piece and says “well made and well finished”.
Say goodbye to mass-produced anonymous products, and say hello to a unique and personal collection of handmade goods that are not only beautiful but a small part of the poverty solution. Fair Trade gifts remind us of their origins and the people behind them, and that makers everywhere deserve a life of dignity and respect as much as anyone in the west. Know that your purchases help them live better.
Pinch was founded in 1979 by three female potters who considered themselves renegades — they preferred to make pinch pots, didn't know how to throw, and didn't care to! In their spirit, Pinch continues to carry artists' work we find interesting, unconventional, and beautiful.
Supporting the artists we buy from, displaying their work beautifully, and providing heart-felt customer service, is our mission. Thank you so much for your support for our small business and the many artists we are proud to represent.
