The Metalbird is made from Corten Steel which will naturally weather to form a beautiful, timeless rust-orange finish. This finish is naturally sealing and does not require any further maintenance. Do not worry, the stake and corten finish will not adversely affect your prized trees if that is where you would like to place your new garden friend.

Metalbird was started by Phil Walters in 2009 as a street art project, where he installed silhouettes of birds around a neighbourhood in New Zealand. This installation immediately sparked interest in these metal birds, as people began to ask if they could buy them for their own gardens and thus Metalbird was formed. Metalbird is now a joy-filled global art project that we invite you to be a part of!
