Naw…if our Pīwakawaka wasn’t cute enough, take a look at it on a plant stake! Metalbird plant stakes are made in our signature 11-gauge Corten Steel and everyone’s going a little bit wild for them. As well as playing a supportive role, this Pīwakawaka lends a lovey-dovey touch to any indoor (and outdoor) plant.
Metalbird is the brainchild of Phil Walters, an industrial designer and lover of street art and New Zealand’s native flora and fauna. Metalbird started as a guerrilla street art project, all over New Zealand’s North Island, Metalbird stencils appeared. In parks, in fences and on power poles.
His handcrafted artworks bring together his passions: the tough, 3mm Corten® steel and stencil design, a nod to his urban art roots. "Our designs represent some of New Zealand’s most precious birdlife. Art isn’t just something you see on a gallery wall – it can be the way the light shines through a coloured window or the splash of spray-paint on a city overpass."
