Upon retiring from the IBM Corporation, I was able to devote more time to my hobbies of stained glass and wood turning. One day in my shop, I became fascinated with the idea of doing something in metals. I experimented with a number of ideas and finally came up with the idea of a metal birdhouse and later metal lamps. My unique, one-of-a-kind whimsical birdhouses and lamps are made from recycled and upcycled metal materials. Their bright colors and uncommon designs will brighten your decor both inside and outside. The bird houses are functional as well as decorative, and the lamps will provide a conversation piece to any room.
