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 place'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 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."

When I need a gift for Caitlin I look in your catalogue first. I rarely have to look farther. For Christmas I ordered her the bat with folded wings. it was so cute that I gave her the other one for her birthday. It joined the first on the chandelier. They are charming and unique.

I really love this company and am never disappointed with their products, nor am i am with this purchase but i will say that i agree with a couple other reviews, that the bats are a little smal for the price, which is the only reason i gave it a three star review. Otherwise these little bats are darling! They are well made and unique but just be prepared if you purchase them, they are small. Still love uncommon goods!!

Pricey for the size

The open winged bat was very nice, but for the size, I feel like the cost should have been for the set. I realize they are hand made and cooper, but I still feel as though we could have gotten more for the money. I also did not receive the hook in the packaging.

Nice but small for the money .

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.
