After reading an article about Frank Foust's creation of Comfort Birds, I have started creating these wonderful little birds.
Comfort Birds are given as a token of support and an act of kindness. When gently rubbed, the smooth birds bring comfort to those needing a tangible reminder that someone loves and cares for them.
Each bird is carved and sanded smooth from different species of wood. These little tokens can be found at the Blackberry Gift Shop.
