Birdwatcher Stone Plaque by Carruth Studio
The Birdwatcher Stone Plaque by Carruth Studio is the ideal gift for a fan of feathered friends or anyone who just loves a whimsical piece of art guaranteed to draw a smile. This amateur ornithologist seems to have forgotten one of the essential truths of birding: the birds watch you as much as you watch them. But even so, he doesn't seem to mind too much that one sweet little fellow is using his head for a perch.
This birdwatcher stone plaque is another example of the charming, creative and artfully-produced work of George Carruth. While working as a sculptor for American Greetings Cards in his late 20s, George Carruth started carving images on stones with basic hand tools simply as a way to enjoy the outdoors and practice his sculpting techniques.
His wife (and biggest fan) Deborah, immediately recognized their beauty and encouraged George to enter art shows to exhibit his one-of-a-kind garden stones. And that's how it all began! They launched Carruth Studio in 1983, once George could build off his success at art shows around the country. George's desire to "plant a smile in your garden" continues today at their retail studio outlet in Waterville, Ohio.
