Metal birds’ started as an Art Project and turned into giftware.
The idea of metal birds came from wanting to do something the artist could covertly hammer into lamp posts, trees and buildings in public spaces that would somehow beautify and add value, or at least not offend.
He ‘placed’ around 40 birds in the field around the North Island over Xmas 2011. It turns out that not only did they not offend, actually people wanted them both for their gardens and houses and their own ‘public installations’.
Unfortunately the artist notified us that he won’t supply ‘online shops’ any longer with these birds. We only have 3 left in stock. Two Black Robin birds and one Hui bird.
