Great Blue Heron made of steel

This sturdy sculptural bird left the shop this afternoon, off to its new home by the lake. A Great Blue Heron was the inspiration for this garden stake. This piece is handcut from steel sheet. The legs are made from rebar and steel balls. I finished it off with sparkling blue eyes. In the garden, it will gently turn a beautiful rust...standing tall above the flowers and grasses.

The bird looks striking against the purple garden shed.
