Phil’s very first pīwakawaka design (nicknamed “A fan of DIY”) the idea of the fantail on a hammer was multifaceted. Aotearoa is small but mighty, pragmatic and creative, finding fixes and unconventional solutions, a number 8 wire mentality that’s been passed down and refined over generations. It’s integral, sitting at the core of who we are: Our willingness to courageously wade into the fray no matter the size of the problem, to repair what’s broken.

‘A fan of DIY’ makes an excellent gift for the fixers, loved ones that won't hesitate to roll up their sleeves and find a solution, even when it seems impossible.

Our A fan of DIY is:

 21cm high by 25cm wide approximately 300g 
Easy to send our regular boxes are standard A4 size, measuring 31cm x 21 cm x 1cm
Same day dispatch on orders placed before 2pm on weekdays
Made locally in a family-owned factory, right here in  NZ
Crafted from 3mm Corten steel and designed to last a lifetime
Easy to install holding on a downwards angle simply tap the thickest end of the stake with a hammer or mallet until secure



Install Tip: Hold the pīwakawaka firmly in one hand while tapping your hammer onto the flat surface end of the branch. If installing into a post, you may need to pre-drill a hole first before installing. 


    Our birds are designed with 3mm CorTen steel to form a protective patina that deepens and strengthens with the seasons. This patina will deepen in shade over the years until it reaches a deep brown/charcoal black hue.

    This self-sealing aspect of CorTen steel provides a quality guarantee of up to 100 years, ensuring that our product lasts a lifetime and remains completely corrosion resistent.

    What might initially resemble generic rust is simply the air and water-tight patina forming over a six month period, so don’t panic! Your Metalbird is doing exactly what it’s been designed to do, and this patina will protect the steel from any further damage and disintegration.

    CorTen steel does not require any treatments, oils or chemical additives and is therefore extremely environmentally friendly.

    MADE FROM PREMIUM CORTEN STEEL

    Corten Steel or ‘Weathering Steel’ is used in high-end exterior architecture, for good reason. Exposed to the elements, within weeks it develops a patina that seals the steel and preserves it for decades. It also leaves a beautiful even colouring that will get darker over the years.
