This rusty metal chicken has plumage that is redolent of the New Hampshire Red. Will rust further when left outside but this will only enhance its appearance.
They may not lay eggs but they sure look pretty round the garden….
The bath has ridges around the inside, so the birds shouldn’t slip whilst they drink or bathe.
The edge of the bird bath is impressed with the verse: “To see a world in a grain of sand – and a heaven in a wild flower – hold infinity in the palm of your hand – and eternity in an hour”. No doubt the birds will be impressed by your beautiful lines (or recognise them as the first verse from William Blake’s - Auguries of Innocence) and see such a cultured garden as a safe place to make its home.
The Bird Bath is supplied with 3 separate glazed ceramic feet which lift it off the ground if you want to use it without the stand.
Just by providing water for them, you can attract twice as many garden birds to your outdoor space.

Jo Downs is a talented glass artist based in Cornwall. She makes large glass sculptures and wall art by layering many strands of beautifully coloured layered glass.
By accident, she invented the Wishstick, a spectacular piece of hanging glass that catches the light, but looks gorgeous even on a dull day.
Hang it near the house, in a tree or large shrub - catch the light and see the colours of the rainbow- we think the Wishstick is much better for the neighbours than a wind chime, anytime!
Comes ready to hang with a sturdy rope loop.
Lovely classic wall pot holder in a rusty metal finish with chinese blue and white aged ceramic glazed pots - you almost don’t need the plants! Frost resistant. Drainage holes in the pots
