Habitats - Hummingbird
A lone hummingbird hovers over windchime tubes that reflect the sunset.
The light and airy tones of this wind chime create a lively feeling and celebrate the variety of nature around us. From butterflies to blue whales, the earth teems with life. Areas that sustain life are called habitats, and each habitat is part of an interconnected system that makes the richness of our life on Earth possible. Our Woodstock Habitats series celebrates the variety of nature around us. Made of cast metal, these designs incorporate some of our favorite animals and other reminders of nature which can enhance your habitat.
The art of casting metal has been around for thousands of years. When heated to extremely high temperatures, metal will reach a molten state and can be poured into a mold. In this way, the ancients were able to create items of both enormous utility and great beauty. The same basic processes are used in foundries today.
This was bought as a gift for a co-worker, it had a subtle sound, which is what she was looking for. She did seem pleased with it and it is pretty enough to be used inside or out.
I am enjoying the look and sound of my new Humming Bird chimes. This is my third set of Woodstock chimes. They never disappoint.
I have had this lovely Woodstock Chime hummingbird for a few years, hanging under the overhang of my farmer's porch. It's delightful to come home to, both visually and acoustically. I was stunned one day last summer when it was actually visited briefly by a live hummingbird, as I watched in awe by my kitchen window.
