Two repeated modules in monolithic ceramic make living space combinations for the sparrows focused around an open atrium which is accessed through a procession of interlinked spaces.
Fabrication in clay and ceramic makes standardized production possible while preserving the character of hand glazing and the innate beauty of the imperfections inherent in the firing process.
The interior of the modules are finished in two colors to test different levels of color attraction in the birds. Each perch is also color coded and provides easy access into the house. The modules allow for eventual multi storey complexes of shared communal space.
Fabricated in collaboration with Heath Ceramics of Sausalito, California
