Object of Desire: A Minimalist Ceramic Birdhouse by Lisa Viscardi

August 16, 2022

Maybe it’s because I recently saw Minions: The Rise of Gru (thanks to one oppressive heat wave and one persistent kid), but ceramicist Lisa Viscardi‘s birdhouses look alive to me, like one-eyed creatures ready to delight. Bulbous, imperfect, sometimes bearing a pair of wings (or arms, depending on how you see them), her hand-built creations are at once chic and playful.

Have a look.

Photography via Commune.

This one reminds me of a little baby bird with its mouth wide open, ready for a worm. It also reminds me of Stuart the Minion. It&#8\2\17;s \$550 at Commune.

&#8\2\20; birdhouses are all one of a kind; varying clay bodies are organically hand built and fired in their raw state before being paired with an assortment of all-weather paracord and marine-grade hardware,&#8\2\2\1; reads the copy on Commune.

My favorite: a matte black version on Commune. Each birdhouse is made in Los Angeles.
