Joseph Hopps is a self taught artist whose early realistic drawings and paintings later shifted to non-objective paintings in oils and acrylics. Working with wood is another interest Joseph pursued, assembling wood reliefs with painted surfaces in abstract forms. Working with wood moved Joseph in other directions as well, from cabinetry to birdhouse building.
Couple with his building skills and art background, Joseph began to formulate the idea of using bird house construction as an art form. Exploring this form of expression is where he found his niche. It is three dimensional work and painted metal surfaces. It is functional, great fun and of course "the sky is the limit".
Shoppers see these aviary abodes as whimsical woodland fairy castles for gnomes, hobbits, pixies, tree nymphs and little people. Joseph intends the same and is quick to point out that the birds love them as well.
Presently Joseph designs and builds his creations along with his son, Bobby, in Edom Texas.
Arbor Castle Birdhouses may be purchased at Arbor Castle Birdhouses showroom in Edom, Tx, from our Online Store, and at art shows throughout the US. See the "What's Up" page for our schedule.
Arbor Castle Birdhouses is a Texas Original. Each birdhouse is designed and hand crafted in the tiny woodland village of Edom by artist and craftsman Joseph Hopps and his son Bobby Hopps. Each aviary castle is one of a kind, is fully functional and may become the home for a variety of small nesting songbirds including bluebirds, wrens, chickadees, nuthatches, titmouse, tree swallows, faeries, gnomes and others. However most Arbor Castle Birdhouses are collected and displayed for their whimsical character and woodland magic. The average height of a birdhouse is 26-30 inches, 8-10 inches in diameter and weigh 8-10lbs.
