Build Series Bird Feeder No. 21
This modern bird feeder is made from welded steel and copper which has been finished with a patina
Whenever I'm working I invariably produce small cut-off pieces of steel in different sizes. These new "Build" series bird feeders represent my attempt at incorporating those various cut-off sections into a completely new series of works.
As photographed, these pieces all measure just under 7' tall. Designed to literally be 'planted' into the soil, they will ultimately stand about 6' 5", although their eventual height can be easily adjusted downward simply by planting them a little deeper.
While the feeder sections of each piece vary slightly in their dimensions, they each feature an aluminum steel screen to hold bird seed, allowing any water to quickly drain through. The roofs of this piece is made from patina treated copper.
