Floating Birdbath


Introducing the ‘Floating’ bird bath, I am so happy with this design, the spun copper dish sits atop a steel tripod made of thin rods and two rings, the base simply disappears into the garden if you want it to. The steel tripod stands at 1 metre high, it is the tallest of all the bases I have made so far, please see the image above with my dog posing for size reference  he is a medium sized furry friend 😉

This bird bath can be purchased over here.


The tripod will be painted with anti-rust paint which may darken the colour a little, but is necessary for retaining the life of the metal.


I think this bird bath would look good surrounded by low growing shrubs or grasses so that it appears to rise up out of the foliage, however in these images I have photographed it on the mulch, for you to see the structure.


The steel stand’s dimensions are 500mm x 300mm x 1000mm. The dish is 780mm wide x 50mm deep, and holds 12 litres of water.

    Very nice. Just what I’m looking for, if I can afford it.

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.
