Metalbird Flock

One Cool Story


What inspired me back in 2009 in Auckland, New Zealand to create life-sized native bird silhouettes out of metal?

I loved creating the birds, sure, but the biggest kick I got was from installing them in parks and streets around my neighbourhood (anywhere I thought I wouldn’t get arrested, basically) and seeing the surprise, delight and intrigue they caused.

Once they saw them, people wanted Metalbirds of their own. My little art project became a side hustle then a full-time job, and finally, with a small team, we took Metalbird to the world. The artistic act of tapping a bird into a post or tree and transforming your environment is something that brings joy to people all over the globe.

We love what we do, we love what you do. So thanks and welcome to the global art project.

Our Sustainable Company


Because we believe in staying local and supporting local, Metalbirds are proudly cut then crafted in a small family-owned UK factory out of premium UK made 11-gauge Corten Steel before being shipped from our warehouse in Swindon. Being a sustainable business is super important to us. From using recycled local steel and to recycled cardboard packaging and much more, we’re on track to becoming carbon negative by 2022.
