I started making these birds because I fell in love with a little bird named dou dou. “dou dou” is a French word that can mean a child’s favorite cuddly toy. dou dou can also mean sweetheart.
dou dou was the name of my little bird that I lost, and the inspiration for the birds I make. dou dou was the most amazing creature I have ever known. He made me realize just how aware and alive all creatures are, and I miss him terribly.
I have always sculpted but I never sculpted a bird until after dou dou came to live with me.
I don't make these birds on a regular basis anymore but you can sign up for the mailing list to to get notified of new batches: contact me or just follow me on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/doudoubirds/
