Yardbirds: CK Cardinal

Yardbirds

Handcrafted in Kentucky, this flighty Cardinal is made using scrap and reject metal, and features a cabinet knob body and marble eyes. Great for all bird lovers, but especially those in Ohio, as the cardinal is the Ohio State Bird. Made in the USA.

Dimensions: 4.5"w x 4"h x 5.5"d

Note: Crafted from unfinished steel, Yardbirds sculptures are intended to and naturally will rust to a beautiful burnt orange finish. To keep them looking like new indoors, treat them with a clear acrylic enamel spray found at any local hardware store.

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST 

Richard Kolb
Louiville, Kentucky

Richard Kolb and his father created the first Yardbirds metal structure over 20 years ago in their hometown of Jamestown, Kentucky. People instantly loved them and they began creating Yardbirds full-time. Now made in Lexington, Kentucky, each Yardbirds structure is unique, whimsical, and guaranteed to bring pleasure to its owner. To create each piece, Rich uses scrap materials as much as possible, including garden tools, farm implements, bicycle and automobile parts, and other junkyard treasures. Part of the fun is trying to identify the parts he’s incorporated into each piece.
