Extinct Birds Series

"In this series, birds that are now extinct are depicted on pottery forms similar to the ones being made in America at a time when these birds were still thriving. The names of the birds are stamped into the clay the way the Early American pottery company names were stamped. The back sides of some of the pieces show the birds as they can be found in the drawers of natural history museums today -- stuffed and with tags on their feet."
