The unique three dimensional line and form of Don Stevenson's hand sculpted birdhouses and bird feeders, all scaled replicas of old buildings from our vanishing rural roadside scene, are skillfully crafted with Stevenson's knowledge of early rural construction methods and his study of applied primitive hand tools. Each of these works of contemporary American folk art present the visual effects of those hand tools together with the hand painted effect of decades of weather and decay as evidenced on the exposed surface of each building's exterior; an artistic visual accomplishment in miniature detail

Don Stevenson's work is a preservation of these treasured rural icons: barns, farm outbuildings, rural churches, country stores, law offices, old wells and spring houses, all true representations of generations past and heirlooms for generations to come that can be found in valued collections throughout America.
