What is a Metalbird made from?

Metalbirds are laser cut from high-quality 3 mm thick Corten steel®.

Where are Metalbirds made?

It would be easier (and cheaper) to make our product in a far off, distant land. We’re happy to say that every one of our birds is made in Europe.

Can you paint them?

Not really – Metalbirds are made from Premium Corten® Steel which is designed to weather naturally and not be painted. It doesn’t mean you can’t but we kind of like them the way they are and unless you do a wonderful job prepping the surface, the paint is likely to come off. If you really, really want to add color to them, then we recommend having them professionally powder coated.

Who designs the birds?

They have been designed as a collaboration between the Europe Metalbird team and the New Zealand Metalbird team – these designs are exclusive to Metalbird. The lead designer is Phil Walters who started this crazy dream over 10 years ago in New Zealand.

Do you do custom birds or projects?

A lot of love, skill and time goes into the creation of one bird. All up, over a week’s work to get it just right! We’re a small team and at this stage it just isn't feasible for us to do small one-off projects - as much as we'd love to. If you have something larger in mind though please get in touch by emailing and we'll see if we can help.

Will my Metalbrid scare off real birds?

No – while we’re not sure what goes through a real Wren's mind when it sees a Barn Owl Metalbird, however, judging from the thousands of photos we’ve seen, real birds love sitting on, or next to our art pieces.

Can I install my bird into a tree?

Of course, it's important to ensure that the tree is not too young, too slender in the trunk, or thinly barked. Look for a mature, large tree with a girthy trunk and thick bark for best results. 

Trees will reflexively seal around small holes made to prevent infection or disease from entering, as we've learned from consulting arborists! However, if you feel unsure, just explore the world for other spots and spaces. 


Can Metalbirds be sent as gifts?

Absolutely… in fact, over half of the birds we sell are gifts. Just tell us the name and postal address of the lucky person and we’ll send it to them in its own beautiful recycled gift box. When you check out, you can even get us to insert a personalised message that our team will print it on a beautiful card. And no… we won’t put anything in the box showing how much it cost. That will be emailed to you.
