Timeless Piece of Art

Supports Bird Conservation

As Seen In

With its purpleish blue body and fab orange legs, the pūkeko has become a kiwiana icon, even though it’s actually an import, dropping in from Australia about a thousand years ago. If you’ve seen pūkeko fly across a small ditch you’ll wonder how on earth they made it over the big one. Awkward in the air but elegant on the feet, pūkeko are at their best wading, running and having a laugh in big social groups. Similar to the endangered takahē, pūkeko is the swamphen that got a zillion times luckier. Cool up your garden with this sensational bird.

Our Pūkeko is:

  • 30cm high by 19cm wide (includes measurement of the branch/spike) 
  • Easily installed with the tap of a hammer (pre-drill hard wood)
  • Crafted in 3mm Corten® 'weathering' Steel to form a beautiful patina that changes with the seasons
  • The perfect gift for a kiwiana-lover

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.
