Yardbirds are handcrafted in Louisville, Kentucky. Each Yardbirds sculpture is created with scrap and recycled parts. Since they are made from recycled materials each dog, cat, or other critter is slightly imperfect. All of the Junkyard Dogs & Cats are bare metal and naturally rust with age -- that's their beauty. As Rich Kolb, the artist, says "They rust, but they'll never run away." He recommends treating them with a clear acrylic enamel spray. Richard Kolb is a juried member of the Kentucky Arts & Crafts Program, American Craft Council and CRAFT. Shown is Rich Kolb's Puppy Love.
All sculptures are made in the USA, hand-cast in solid, lead-free pewter, and meticulously hand-finished. Limited Edition Color Collection pieces feature a breakthrough multi-layer hand-painting process. Rich exotic paints bring each piece to life!
