weather vanesby Ben and Kate Gatski
- the story
Bring the barnyard to your yard with these charming and rustic decorative weather vanes handmade from rescued farm equipment. Created by Pennsylvania artists Ben and Kate Gatski as a tribute to American folk art and the century-old tradition of decorative weather vanes.
Due to the heavy weight of the recycled material used, these vanes will only rotate in strong winds (20+ mph).

Ben and Kate Gatski
Ben and Kate Gatski want to honor agriculture through art. They hand select old machinery found on local farms. The process involves tearing apart large equipment to get smaller parts for the sculptures.
Both Ben and Kate worked in agriculture prior to their current work. Ben started his own organic dairy business at 19. And Kate worked for the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture, which helps to inform farmers about organic and sustainable techniques. They began their metal business in 2004.
