Back in 1990, They Might Be Giants released their dadaist alt rock hit, “Birdhouse in Your Soul“. It’s a catchy tune, no doubt, but it always had me wondering where the soulless built their birdhouses. Thanks to Rotterdam-based, Stefan Gross, I now know.
Meet Rebirdy, a ceramic-like birdhouse loosely based on the 5th century Tibetan wisdom: “…just as the skull of old Wan-Shi will once become a home for new life …” For 65 Euros (~ $82 USD), Gross will make you your very own, very gothic birdhouse. Just choose the base model below, and email him at info [at] stefangross [dot] nl.
Oh, but there’s more Birdhouse in your skull! Click through to meet The Doomies (kinda like if The Grim Reaper got busy with a fertile Garden Gnome.)
Doomies “are handmade smoking ceramic garden gnomes, they withstand all weather conditions, but they are also for indoor smoking. They come with 12 incense cones.” Yeah, what he said.
Three sizes are available: 4-5″ for ~ $14 USD, 8-9″ for ~ $23 USD, 11-12″ for ~ $35 USD. Email Gross for more info, and check out lots of photos of smoking gnomes in idyllic Dutch gardens (before they were burnt to ashes, right?) here: http://www.grimgarden.com/
