Want to know more about Yardbirds?
My father and I created the first Yardbird over 25 years ago in Jamestown, Kentucky. He spent most of his career making things out of metal, including farm gates and large satellite dishes. We began talking about all the things you could make with scrap materials and, after experimenting with things around our own home, the first Yardbird was born. People instantly loved them as much as we did, so we began creating Yardbirds® full-time.
Now, Yardbirds are made in Louisville, KY. We try to use overrun, discontinued, rejected, and scrap materials as much as possible. Some of the materials I use include garden tools, car parts, farm implements, bicycle parts, and mufflers. I think that Yardbirds are a great way to contribute to the good of the environment. They save rejected metal parts from ending up in a landfill and they beautify homes and yards everywhere!
I am very proud to say that all Yardbirds are proudly HANDCRAFTED in KENTUCKY! I am a juried member of Kentucky Crafted, C.R.A.F.T (Craft Retailers & Artists for Tomorrow) and the American Craft Council. Every six months, numerous new designs are added to the Yardbirds collection of sculptures, wine caddies, flowerpot holders, and dog and cat feeders.
For me, creating Yardbirds turns work into fun! Each Yardbird is unique, whimsical, and guaranteed to bring pleasure to its owner. A Yardbird is a great conversation piece. Many people have fun identifying the parts I cleverly use to make them and they marvel at the way a simple tilt of a head can give a sculpture so much personality. Many Yardbirds are even claimed as part of the family. Visit the News for a few pictures and stories that have been sent to us from collectors who have done just that.
Dimensions listed with each critter are approximate.
