Ceramics of New York is known well for it’s large selection of ceramic supplies but we also create some of the most sought after metal weather vanes and wind chimes in the country.
A weather vane (or weathercock) is an instrument for showing the direction of the wind . They are typically used as an architectural ornament to the highest point of a building.
Although partly functional, weather vanes are generally decorative, often featuring the traditional cockerel design with letters indicating the points of the compass. Other common motifs include ships, arrows and horses. Not all weather vanes have pointers.
The word ‘vane’ comes from the Old English word ‘fane’ meaning ‘flag’.
We have a variety of styles available from custom hammered copper angels to cast iron roosters and everything in between. Whether musical, decorative or functional, all our metal work is of the highest quality and will bring years of enjoyment to you ears and your eyes. Express yourself with a unique rooftop statement or give as a thoughtful gift. A themed weather vane is a wonderful accent for both indoor and outdoor display.
