The Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of the summer season for many people.  The days are longer, the sun is warmer and life is just a bit more relaxed. As you enjoy the outdoors you will, no doubt, begin to notice the appearance of all of summer's winged creatures---birds, bees and butterflies.  Here at Martin Pierce Hardware we are also inspired by these fascinating creatures and have created various pieces of door hardware based on this inspiration, including passageway door handles and cabinet knobs.

Our bee door knob is a beautifully detailed rendition of a bee placed atop a slice of honeycomb and cast in bronze in our Los Angeles facility.

Butterflies represent change and our butterfly cabinet pull, available in two different sizes, will definitely change the look of cabinetry and furniture in your next interior design project.

Birds make an appearance on many Martin Pierce items, including door handles and artwork.  Our swallow pull can be used on items of furniture as shown here on a custom toy chest we designed for our client or as door and cabinet hardware.

Our jay bird bronze sculpture would be a statement making addition to any art collection.  You can follow along on the process of creating a sculpture like this via blog posts published here and here.

Door knockers are certainly a part of entry door hardware and our woodpecker door knocker will add a bit of whimsy and function to your front door.
