A perennial favorite here at the showroom, the 30" wire spheres (single or double) are available assembled or as a do-it-yourself kits. Wrapped and lit with strings of white lights, they become original chandeliers or dramatic garden art.
I first found birdcages at the bird market in Tulungagung, on the island of Java. An open-air venue, it is a bustling place, with a maze of cages hanging at head level, vats of wriggling grubs, and seedy professional traders making deals out back. I went with the local favorites, a selection of tried and true utilitarian models.
