Timeless Piece of Art
Supports Bird Conservation
Feast your eyes on our bird of the century, the one and only Pūteketeke! Taking the election by storm, this slender necked waterbird with glam-rock plumage and off-beat charisma stole hearts and minds all over the globe with its glorious synchronised dance abilities.
Any silhouette of this champion would be incomplete, without his campaign manager of USA chat show host and gate-crasher of bird elections, John Oliver. You can add a clip-on addition of Mr Oliver himself at cart for $19.95.
Our Pūteketeke is:
✓ 37cm high by 36cm wide approximately 1kg
✓ Easy to send our large boxes measure 39cm x 34 cm x 1cm, designed to fit in a postal mailer
✓ Made locally in a family-owned factory, right here in the AU
✓ Crafted from 3mm Corten steel and designed to last a lifetime
✓ Easy to install by inserting firmly into the ground, or simply wedging between two solid surfaces
Your Pūteketeke directs 30% of all proceeds to Forest & Bird to support their tireless conservation work, and makes the perfect gift for fans of glam rock, synchronised swimming, or anyone planning a coup.
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.
