These 'Metalbirds' are a beautiful and strong sculptural statement for your garden or house.
Metalbird was started by Phil Walters in New Zealand in 2009, as a street art project and has since grown to a successful business adding to the range of beautiful birds that look stunning in the garden, adding depth and interest.
Hammer them into a tree, fence or building and they will look great and cast a fabulous shadow.
Hammering the metal bird into a tree will not cause any long-term damage, you may see the plant leaking sap at first, but this will heal quickly.
'Metalbirds' are designed and created in Auckland and are made out of 3mm Corten® (corten copper chromium alloy steel, ) which is weather resistant. It is designed to rust quickly, which gives a layer of protection. It means that Metalbirds last for decades, with a rugged patina that changes with the seasons and looks great amongst plants and the outdoor environment.
Metal birds are available in different sizes - a large size, an extra-large size and doubles birds.
