Flat Pack Birdcage

The 'Flat Pack Birdcage' is the ultimate in disposable luxury!  The intricate component parts are cut by waterjet from 6mm thick sheets of glass.  Once cut, each part is then sandblasted and fire polished before being painstakingly assembled using traditional 'tabs and slots'.

A must for the time-poor bird fancier, the cage needs no cleaning or maintenance and comes complete with cast glass bird that, conveniently, requires no feeding!

Intended as a light-hearted comment on the throw-away society in which we live, in reality the birdcage is highly impractical, due to the complexity of its production and its evident fragility.

Measurements approx 17cm x 17cm x 49cm (height).  Can be made by commission to specific colours.
