The Bird is the Word

Happy Birthday to Me!
What a wonderful birthday present! Although this wasn't designed by Charles and Ray Eames, it's known as The Eames Bird because it was displayed in their house for over fifty years, and featured in many promotional photos of their furniture. The original was actually from Appalachia, and this version, made by Vitra under license from the Eames Office, is made of black lacquered alder, with wire legs and beady eyes. I can hardly wait to see this in the finished Minnie House.
