for the birds

August 10, 2012

Vasse Vaught grew up near Blacksburg, VA. He later moved to Switzerland to study metal work.

While he was there, Vaught met his wife, who was completing her master’s degree in architecture. Eventually, the couple returned to Virginia to live and work.

The Vaughts started Vasse Vaught Metalcrafting in Christianburg.

In 2000, while trying to design a lamp, Vasse made a contemporary bird feeder. His design mistake soon became the company’s best seller.

Made of 16-ounce copper, the Vogeli bird feeder comes in two sizes. The small feeder ($66) is 10 inches across. The larger size ($94) measures 18 inches across.Vogeli means little bird in Swiss-German.

The company also makes bird baths (below) and other copper feeders in various shapes. In the garden, the sculptural pieces age to a natural green patina.
