Corn Cob Weathervane

Corn Cob Weather Vane


Our customers for this iconic Corn Cob Weathervane live in Rochester Minnesota, deep in the middle of what is known as the corn belt of North America. As a starting point for the design process they sent us a picture of a corn cob ‘disguised’ water tower that is literally an enormous visual landmark in the region.

We created this mirror image piece in copper, and love the final result. This customer also requested optional gold leaf on the corn kernels. By doing this the kernels will remain in bright contrast to the weathering copper that will, over years, darken and then patina to a nice leafy green in their climate.

They also requested ‘Lucky Pennies‘ from important days in their family be sealed in their sculpture along with the traditional penny from the year of their vane’s creation.
