Handmade by Stephen McRae so dimensions, colour and shape may vary. Named the Bold as Brass Robin, because this Robin’s distinctive chest is created by melting solid brass (a process known as brazing) onto the 3mm thick steel cut out. The brass flows freely, guided by the intense heat from the handheld flame from the oxy acetylene torch. This creates a unique outline every time. It is then welded onto a 6mm diameter round steel rod which has been forged into an S hook. This makes it ideal for hanging in the garden from a tree, hook etc. The hook below the robin is then ideal for hanging birdfeeders (coconuts, fat balls) and small lanterns from.
Each robin S hook is given a sand and polish before coating in an environmentally user-friendly vegetable-based oil and wax finish. Left outside exposed to the elements, this design will oxidise slowly leaving a lovely natural finish more in keeping with a robin’s plumage. The brass element will dull over time but can easily be cleaned back to its original bright finish. If you wish to keep the whole robin pristine and original in appearance, then we recommend you regularly oil and wax it or treat with any clear protective lacquer (sprayed or painted on).
