The pair began creating their Songbirds in 2006 and have since transformed a whole range of unexpected relics [6] into these intersting figurative sculptures. Even croquet balls and wheels are given a second life by the team, and are newly manifested as a flighty decoration piece.

Warning potential customers that the pieces are all found, the website notes that each inventive sculpture varies in colour and style as no two are identical, a charming reminder that each piece is repurposed.
