Get the Itch

Who would tell this adorable insect to buzz off? The iconic summer pest takes on an expected cuteness in this handcrafted copper homage by Catherine Murphy and her team of fellow artisans. Using a hammer, vise, anvil, and oxy-acetylene torch, they fold, forge, and anneal copper transforming it into a three-dimensional interpretation of a zany mosquito. Propped on an extra-tall garden stake, this hardly bothersome bug will be a welcome sight as it hovers over your yard or garden. 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

      Comments about MOSQUITO GARDEN STAKE:

      The first garden stake arrived damaged. The shipping box was damaged on the outside and the stake was bent. Customer service immediately sent a replacement. They also asked several questions about both the interior and exterior packaging. This made me believe that they are committed to sending out a quality product. I am very pleased and impressed with the product and customer service.
