Copper Bird Feeder

This copper bird feeder was recently finished.  It features a round tower with wrapping ivy vines, a bay window and a stone tower on the left side.  This has the same whimsical feel as the birdhouse in the previous post.  Also notice the feeder is being field tested.  Success.
And a view from the back that show the ivy and round stone tower.  The copper ivy is a nice addition with the ivy growing on the oak tree in the background,
A close-up of the round tower and ivy.
For my sculpture friends, here us a picture entitled, How did they do that?  This shows the stones being formed in the flat and the beginning of the window.  This will be hammered and rolled into a round tower and trimmed and brazed to the main structure.
