Nocturnal Neighbor

There are over 1,000 species of bats in the world, but the rare copper garden bat seen swaying in your rose bushes is unlike the rest. A handcrafted take on our nocturnal neighbors, this friendly sculpture keeps company in your yard, on your porch, or even hanging in front of the kitchen window. Catherine Murphy welds each critter into two poses: wings open, ready for flight, or closed, ready to nap. She then creates an S hook for easy hanging. Adaptable to any climate, it's sealed with a protective finish before it "flies" from Catherine's forge in Asheville, North Carolina to your home.

“Like attracts like, as well as inspires it.”

Growing up in a military family, Catherine Murphy spent her childhood discovering new places around the world and every locale's characteristic outdoor sites. Each time she sits down to create a new piece, however, the metalworker pictures it living in her favorite place in the world: "a fabulous garden," she says, adding that she's "amazed and inspired by life in the garden.”

Her nature-themed wire copper sculptures only serve to make the green spaces themselves more amazing. In fact, it’s that merging of her two loves that "feeds my soul and keeps me motivated," she says. And if the North Carolina resident ever gets stuck, all she needs to do is go outside. "When those moments come up, my go-to spot is a bench by the river," she says. "Living in the mountains and working beside a river make for a wealth of inspiration."

        These little bats are adorable. They caught my eye when browsing the catalog. I got a sleeping bat. It looks so cute when watching us inside. Love that! Can't wait to buy open winged bat. Thanks! Very happy w it.

              Again it would be better for the price as a small set. Yes I realize it's copper. To get the effect it should be at least 3 inches bigger.
