Flight of Fancy

Captivated by copper's warm, autumnal color and its malleable qualities, Catherine Murphy and her team have transformed this ubiquitous metal—used to create American's smallest coinage, the penny—into one-of-a-kind artworks. Using a hammer, vise, anvil, and oxy-acetylene torch, they fold, forge, and anneal copper transforming it into a three-dimensional interpretation of a sweet wren perched in its nest. Propped on an extra tall garden stake, this swoon-worthy bird will be easy to spot as it peeks over your yard or garden, greeting visitors with its enchanting, hand-crafted character. Handmade in North Carolina.

North Carolina

Growing up in a military family, Catherine Murphy spent her childhood discovering new places around the world and every locale's characteristic outdoor sites. Each time she sits down to create a new piece, however, the metalworker pictures it living in her favorite place in the world: "a fabulous garden," she says, adding that she's "amazed and inspired by life in the garden.”

Her nature-themed wire copper sculptures only serve to make the green spaces themselves more amazing. In fact, it’s that merging of her two loves that "feeds my soul and keeps me motivated," she says. And if the North Carolina resident ever gets stuck, all she needs to do is go outside. "When those moments come up, my go-to spot is a bench by the river," she says. "Living in the mountains and working beside a river make for a wealth of inspiration."

      Comments about UncommonGoods Bird and Nest Copper Garden Stake:

      I staked this close to a Yew by my front door. It is of good quality however it is much smaller than I expected. I have the Praying Mantis and I expected it to be equal in size.

      I purchased this as a gift. The item is as georgeous as it appears in the picture. The only fault I have with the particular item I received was the copper pole did not into the bird nest. With some sanding this was resolved. Overall this did not take away from the beautiful of the item.

            I gave this as a gift -- so don't have end user comments. But I had the box shipped to me first (so I could wrap it) so got to take a look at the product. It seemed exactly as billed -- I loved the colors and design. I was happy to give it as a gift.

              I bought this as a gift for my husband, the gardener. He really likes it. His first comment was that it was sturdier than it looked at first glance - so it should hold up to the elements outside.

              I arrived in tact and on time. Sweet design and a delightful piece. Thank you!

                    Package was open on arrival. Product was not damaged. The note I requested for my wife was not included. I found these two things very disappointing. Not sure if I will make future purchases.
