Bandana Yardbirds unique handmade junkyard sculpture creations will liven up your home and garden! Animal sculpture creations include yard birds, cats, critters, dogs, kittens, puppies, wild animals, clocks, coat racks, keyholders, pet feeders, pot holders and unique wine holders. Each Yardbirds sculpture creation is unique, whimsical, and guaranteed to bring pleasure to the owner. A Yardbirds sculpture is a great conversation piece; many people have fun identifying the parts cleverly used to make them and they marvel at the way a simple tilt of the head can give a sculpture so much personality.

Scrap metal and recycled parts are mostly used for the creation of a yard bird, cat, critter, dog, kitten, puppy or wild animal. These creations are thought to as a good way of contributing to the environment; they are saving rejected metal parts from ending up in the landfill and they do wonders for improving the looks of their owners' homes or yards. We have recently added unique cat, dog and horse wine holders to our collection. All yard birds and Junkyard Dogs and Cats are proudly handcrafted in Kentucky!

The medium is metal sculpture. Some of the materials used include garden tools, car parts, farm implements, bicycle parts and mufflers.

We believe that the things that make us the happiest in life when we obtain them are not always the necessities of life, but usually the things that we do not need make us the happiest. And that's what Yardbirds sculptures are all about - happiness!
