Tere Ryder’s Bird and Moon Studio is based in Seattle, Washington

Bird With Gears

Her fantastic birds are embellished with pieces found at auction and in flea markets, junk and antique shops. Some of the gears and clock parts have been extracted from antique pocket watches that dating back to the 1800’s.

“…thinking about birds most of the time now feels like such a good thing….something about flight, freedom, soaring, etc…….One can’t help smile, and that is what I try to imbue in my birds….a different personality for each one that will make one smile”.

Tere has only given her creations descriptions, the name is up to the adopter- she expressed that “…each one kind of speaks a different thing to each person that sees it”.
