LOAM Clay Studio


Enjoying a few days of summer

We will be closed from July 16th to July 31st inclusively in order to catch a bit of sunshine!  We will be back in the Studio on August 1st!  Hope to see you then!

Our famous hummingbird and small bird feeders are back!

Hummingbirds usually arrive in Ottawa by the end of the first week of May. It is important to know the average date they arrive in your specific area to get your feeders up 5-10 days before the average date so they will see your feeders up and take a drink, and possibly stay for the season in your backyard!

You can get your feeders by clicking on the images below!
