Hand-carved Kingfisher sculpture, happy just to hang out on any edge or ledge.

Each wooden bird is lovingly carved from a custom selected bit timber to provide its own unique grain pattern and character. The upmost effort has been put in to sustainably source all of the materials used to ensure the most gentle of fo. As each one is custom carved they are all slightly different in shape.

These were carved from tasmainian blackwood that was sourced from a local plantation. It is owned by a chap called Rienhold and his little patch of froest is on the west coast of NZ. His grandfather planted the trees when he first settled in NZ and Reinhold has decided to put any profits earned from harvesting them back into native forest regeneration projects so he can see his family's legacy of planting tress carry on through the generations. It makes me happy to think that by buying the timber to make the birds that it is helping to sustain NZ's stunning west coast forests :).

The Kngfisher, any of about 90 species of birds in three families (Alcedinidae, Halcyonidae, and Cerylidae), noted for their spectacular dives into water. They are worldwide in distribution but are chiefly tropical. Kingfishers, ranging in length from 10 to 42 cm (4 to 16.5 inches), have a large head, a long and massive bill, and a compact body. Their feet are small, and, with a few exceptions, the tail is short or medium-length. Most species have vivid plumage in bold patterns, and many are crested.
