Perched Fowl Fixtures
The 'Bird on a Wire' Light Whimsically Mimics a Telephone Line Roost

The beautifully erratic pattern of sparrows sitting along an electricity line has been reproduced on a small domestic scale as the ‘Bird on a Wire’ light. Giopato & Coombes of Italy have brought life into the often serious appearance of linear lighting fixtures, decorating it with enchanting figurines of feathered creatures in roost.

Each of the small winged sculptures has been recovered from old ceramic bowls of Bassano del Grappa. They were attached in casual positions to the bare metal bar of the pendant lamp and, with it, painted a lovely glossy white.

The effect produced is a bright inverted silhouette of adorable airborne animals perched delicately across a narrow beam or cord casing. The ‘Bird on a Wire’ light delightfully “freezes a moment of intersection between nature and man-made.”
