Animal Head Art: Amanda Lynch Smith's Songbirds


My dear friend Amanda is a talented artist and ceramicist. Her normal work can get a bit pricey, but in the last few months she has opened an etsy shop featuring some more affordable pieces, including a whole series of songbirds with lady faces. (I know that's kind of the opposite of the way we do things at AHV - we're bigger on animal heads and human bodies - but this juxtaposition is just as awesome). Plus, she uses lots of different vintage molds to make some of her little characters.

These faces just kill me:
