Flight Of Fancy

Welcome fine-feathered visitors to your garden with this graceful new ceramic birdbath. Designed by Barbara Barry, it is hand crafted by ceramic artisans in the Pacific Northwest. Dressed in a high-fired glaze finish, the glossy clay bowl rests upon a delicately grooved frame that gradually expands to a cast bronze ring base. The basin is fitted with a hand-carved bronze branch; finished with impressions and etchings that mimic natural markings, it makes a particularly inviting perch for a passing robin or cardinal. Measuring 20.5 inches wide, 20.5 inches deep, and 29 inches high, the bird bath costs $2,303 and is available at McGuire New York in Manhattan; (212) 689-1565.
