The "Organic with Bird" series will bring a joyous touch to your garden or home. An impressionistic bird hand cut and formed in silicon bronze and finished with a rich patina perches atop a free-formed, steel branch which has been heated with a torch until blackened, then scrubbed with a brass brush till golden hued. Designed in two parts, the full-length sculpture, with an average height of 74 inches, can be sunk ten to twelve inches into your garden, and, if placed near a bird feeder or bath, it may soon attract visiting birds. With either a long or short lower extension rod it can also be used indoors as a decorative accent piece. An elegant stand with the same brass-brushed finish is available for indoor, deck or patio.
