The vintage bird collection, designed by Jim Mullan, was inspired by his fascination with birds and antique objects. The crows were used as hunting decoys in the 30’s and 40’s and the smaller birds were carved in the 1950’s. The original decoys were passed on to Jim in 1991 and he turned each into an eclectic, one of a kind piece of art. The original inventory of birds was depleted in 2009. Now the birds are carved, faithfully referencing the originals, hand painted, and finished with the addition of a variety of vintage pieces. The unusual relics used, such as croquet balls, binoculars and old toys give each inspiring bird his own personality. Objects once cast aside as useless are used in designs to demonstrate the fragile balance between nature and industry.
