This Polly does not want a cracker. This Polly eats nuts. And bolts and washers and screws and...

Forget about "light as a feather." This is a seriously heavy bird, but that's not surprising considering its pedigree. Each of these parrots has the body of a pipe wrench, the head of an adjustable wrench, nuts for eyes, screws for legs, toes cut from metal rings, and bendable wings made of sheet metal. Various other metal bits and scraps make up the rest of each bird.

The smaller of the two birds sits on its own swing. Its crest was made from small machine screws. The bird measures 10" from the top of the head to the tip of the tail. The piece is about 15" from the top of the swing to the bird's tail, 10" at the widest part of the swing, and 8.5" from beak to back. It has a hole at the top of the swing for hanging.

The larger of these psittacines (look it up) sits on a perch that is screwed onto a heavy-duty stake, appropriate for the garden or a large houseplant. It is 16" from head to tail and has a crest made from pliers handles. Its wingspan is 14", give or take a few inches depending on how much you "fluff" its feathers. The stake extends about 32" from the ground to the perch. Although it is meant to sit atop the included stake, it does sit nicely on a flat surface.

These parrots were made from real used tools, not fabricated pieces made to look like tools, and they are HEAVY! The larger parrot also requires oversize packaging for the perch. Because of this, they are not eligible for free shipping.

About Sugarpost

Based in Salt Lake City, Sugarpost makes "Garden art that doesn't suck."

Artist Fred Conlon was first inspired by a massive pile of old WWII army helmets that he saw at his local military surplus yard. What was intended to be a mascot for his pottery shop ended up becoming a helmet turtle that he reluctantly sold the first day on display, and Sugarpost Metal was on its way.

Sugarpost provides fun metal art to eclectic dreamers in a neighborly environment with a humorous voice, helping them feel joy and replace their boring art. We're often asked, "But will it rust?" It sure will! Sugarpost says it's, "Art that's guaranteed to rust."
