Such a striking bird feeder! Adds a modern architectural vibe to the backyard. I added peanuts and the steller jays were surrounding it in no time. The squirrels also enjoy it.

About

For Birds and Other Living Things

I was born in NYC, grew up in Waldwick, NJ, and moved back to New York to attend college: first at Parsons School of Design, later at NYU and Hunter College. I moved to St. Louis in 1994, where I live with my fiancée Rachel, our two Boston Terriers, Sassy and Winston… and a black lab mutt named Jack.

Several years ago Rachel's mom asked me if I could fix a tall platform bird feeder that some raccoons had climbed up on and bent. I figured it would be easier to just weld her a new one. I had remembered, from a documentary I'd seen on big wave surfing, how some surfers had attached to their boards an extended tail fin that ended with a sort of eye beam shape at the bottom. They discovered that it lifted their boards just slightly above the waves while still anchoring them firmly in the water. I thought this might prove a good solution for anchoring a tall bird feeder firmly into the ground without unnecessary cementing.

I'm always looking for interesting solutions to simple problems. As usual one thing tends to lead to another and I've been expanding on these ideas ever since.

Thanks for stopping by.

Every piece I have listed here on Etsy is made entirely by hand... by me. Even the circular 'Charm' bird feeders have been bent by hand and welded into a circle.

All of the large 'sculptural' works are essentially one of a kind pieces. Although I often will repeat some of the basic design concepts, no two will ever be exactly the same.

With most of the smaller 'design' oriented work, I always try to keep a certain amount on hand. Since these are always finished with a final coat of paint, prior to shipping, it will usually take me at least a day or two to pack and ship your order.

Please let me know if you have any particular time constraints, as I will always do my best to oblige.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
If for any reason you're not satisfied with any piece I've made, just let me know. I will be glad to either correct the problem, create a new piece which better suits your needs, or simply issue you a refund upon return.
Payment
I accept Credit Cards or Paypal for all payments.
Shipping
I use FedEx ground for all my US shipping. Since I'm shipping pieces from St. Louis, FedEx is usually just four days or less to anywhere in the country. Often it's just two or three days.

International orders will ship via the USPS.
Additional policies and FAQs
While no two pieces will ever be exactly the same, I'm always more than willing to revisit earlier designs. I often do that myself... so please feel free to convo me with your specific requests. I love to play around with earlier work!
