Garden Photo Competition – Win a Medium Dish!


This Winter we’re running a garden photo competition on instagram, your chance to show off your gardening skills to us and win a Medium Spun Copper Dish valued at $545.00!!

Take a photo of the spot in your garden that needs a birdbath and share it to your instagram page with the hashtag #INeedABirdbathHere. Make sure to tag @mallee_design in the description.

We’re looking for beautiful gardens with habitat for native birds. You might like to indicate where you want the birdbath to go with an arrow but that’s not essential.  

We’ll be announcing the winner on the 10th August. The winning entry will be featured on the front page of the Mallee Design website and through our social media channels.

Please note that by entering the competition you give permission for Mallee Design to use your photo entries as marketing material.

We look forward to seeing your wonderful gardens!

    Hi i am currently saving up for one of your spun bowls for a birdbath. I love the blue patina. Is there anything specifically that makes the blue come out?

      Hi Lacey,

      The blue patina that comes out is part of the oxidation of the copper. It happens naturally over time through the weathering process. You can speed up the development of the patina by filling the birdbath up completely with water and then letting that water evaporate off before filling it again. We find that this way of ageing a dish brings out those beautiful blue concentric rings most readily. It usually take 3-6 weeks for a fresh copper dish to fully develop its patina.

      All the best,

Birdbaths designed for birds

Mallee Birdbaths are specifically designed to serve birds. The copper dishes are broad and shallow, allowing birds to land on the edge and walk into the water. The baths are modern, elegant and durable. They are locally made in the Illawarra (NSW, Australia) using materials that will weather well and last decades. For help on which dish to choose, go here.
