Build Series Bird Feeder 16 in Orange
This modern bird feeder is made from welded steel and aluminum. The roof is made from curved perforated aluminum which has been treated with white spray enamel. The steel body has been finished in orange spray enamel.
Whenever I'm working I invariably produce small cut-off pieces of steel in different sizes. These "Build" series bird feeders incorporate 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 perforated aluminum.
