yay retro! now sell mosaic birds!
The big news this week is that yay retro! has teamed up with accomplished artist Fiona Gurney to sell her fabulous mosaic birds in our online vintage china shop. Made with fragments of china from the 1950s to the 70s, Fiona's artwork is beautiful, meticulously put together and an absolute joy! We have begun collecting her work which looks wonderful in our home, and now you can being collecting too.
Each bird is completely unique, and wherever possible we will tell you which china the bird was made from. Here we have a lovely dove subtly made with Pontesa Castilian Toledo pieces.
The two birds above cleverly include cup handles as their wings. The 'Blackbirds' wing looks heart shaped!
The lovely thing is that if you love a certain range of china, we can often match a bird to it! Here we have a Poole Morocco teapot with a Poole Morocco Bird!
