Floating Birdbath


This is the new steel tripod stand for my spun copper dishes, this stand is designed to disappear into the plants in a garden bed. It is made up of three thin metal rods that taper and attach to a steel ring on which the dish sits upon. This bird bath can be purchased over here.


There are two finishes. The first uses Micaceous Iron Oxide paint, a solid sealant and protectant against rust, this is the stuff they paint the Sydney Harbor bridge with ;). The second is made with Coreten steel: a steel designed to form a protective coat of rust.


The stand is a matt dark grey which looks great against the copper, I recommend placing the stand on some pavers or bricks in the garden, to ensure longevity.


The floating steel stands come in 3 heights:

510mm – small
760mm – medium
1000mm – tall

    I love the look of your birdbaths.
    Does the stand come with the birdbath as the original ring did? If not how much is it?
    Also, I presume that copper is safe for birds?
    Also, the baths that are sitting on stone or wood – are they simply sitting on top or are they cleverly attached with the 3 different points that you suggest?
