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.

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 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.
