Image for: Why the Free Bird Sings  waterglobe

It started with a birdcage and the thought: how would a steampunk birdcage look? And I added an elaborate base, brass and hardware, then a weathervane made from a clock hand, just to balance the piece and draw interest to the top as well as base. I thought putting a bird inside the cage was too easy, so I decided to build a metal bird and let him be outside, so he had a choice. The bird came together well, and I found watch pieces that were left and right shapes that reminded me of wings, not bad. I found a metal bead for the body and a brass bead for the head. Nothing I had was right for the beak, so I fumbled around and decided to cut a cone-shape in half to make it work.

We are always looking to improve the listings in "Steampunk Daily". As you can imagine, its not a simple task to colate such a large listing of items. Whilst we have done our best to find title, description, artists/designers details, we are not perfect.
