Admiration of birds is a universal phenomenon where mankind is concerned. And, as a result, it is not surprising that
Bird Pottery is an important part of virtually every culture. When it comes to the 21st Century, Bird Pottery is an excellent Home Decorating Idea. In fact, for the discriminating birder, Bird Pottery is a wonderful way to display one’s interest in our winged friends!

One of the more interesting pieces of Bird Pottery that Wings on Things, the premier home décor website for birders, has is a Zapotec Wedding Vase. To fully appreciate the piece, it is important to understand Wedding Vases in general. Jose created this lovely wedding vase featuring etched and painted wildlife designs on a matte background. Signed by the artist and includes pottery ring stand - 6 1/8" Tall, 4 5/8" Wide.

All Wedding Vases have some commonality. For example, each one has two openings or “spouts” connected by a single handle. Each spout represents one of the individuals in the marriage, while the handle symbolizes the joining of the two lives.

Traditionally, the Wedding Vase is made by the parents of the groom a week or two before the ceremony. Once completed, the groom and his family present the vase to the bride. The Wedding Vase is treasured and protected throughout the couple’s marriage. If one spouse lives longer than the other, their vase can be passed on to newly weds to help celebrate their union.

The enchanting piece of Bird Pottery we have here is a light blue Wedding Vase with green branches and green leaves, which feature tan veins. Lovely, as it is adorned with a host of redheaded sparrow-like birds with a tan belly, wings of dark green and beige markings, the vase sits on a black, fabric covered ring. This truly would be an ideal addition to the home décor of any discriminating birder!
