Looking at the Tree Ring Birdhouse, a few formal references will become immediately apparent. The winsome wooden aviary seems to take the shape of an egg -- an appropriate choice for making this egg-laying species feel warm and welcome.

However, this Hinika bird house might also remind you of the look of a beehive, enabling it to blend in naturally with its arboreal setting. It complements surrounding branches and twigs and exudes a simple organic charm when it's recognized behind the foliage.

Layers of oval-cut wooden components make up the Tree Ring Birdhouse to reinforce this natural aesthetic. The surface that Jarrod Lim has created comes to mimic that of an arboreal cross-section and the patterns of bark that surround knots in trunks.
