  • the story

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.

Catherine Murphy

Growing up in a military family, Catherine Murphy spent her childhood traveling around the world and experiencing every locale's characteristic outdoor sites. Eventually, she settled in North Carolina and started a career working with metal and helping to create impressive high-rise construction projects, but Catherine never lost her fascination with the natural world and she longed to fuse her passion for nature with her talent for metalworking. Her outlet for this irresistible desire finally came in the form of one, especially intriguing metal: copper. collection

    This gift was a huge hit with my mom! She has always been into gardening and she said that this piece makes her garden complete. It has only been out in her yard for a couple weeks now so we shall see how it holds up- but I can tell you she is thrilled with it this far.

                A Christmas gift from my daughter, I placed it in a very large potted tree in my sun filled family room. So many people have noticed and admired it. Several have purchased It for themselves. Understated elegance.

                          My mother loves birds and stylish lawn ornaments. She despises gaudy or tacky accessories and avoids them at all costs. She absolutely loves the bird and nest stake.
