Cubist Modern Bird Feeder / Aqua
These welded steel "Cubist" bird feeders measure 11" tall X 8" wide. Two stainless steel rods, extend through holes drilled into the sides of each piece, and allow a perforated aluminum screen for bird seed to simply rest on the rods.
The feeder screen sits between the boundaries created by two rectangular slats which are inserted through cuts made into both sides of the pieces. An additional stainless steel rod runs perpendicularly through these slats, serving to stabilize the rectangular elements, and serving as an extended perch for birds.
Keeping the various elements separate - without welding - allows for them to be painted separately, now in in the future. These pieces are each treated with spray primer and enamel.
