The Twin Spires of Churchill Downs have become a recognized landmark and a visual symbol of its most famous race, the Kentucky Derby. Constructed in 1895, the Twin Spires were the creation of a 24-year-old draftsman, Joseph Dominic Baldez. The hexagonal spires exemplify late 19th century architecture, in which symmetry and balance took precedence over functional.
Our Stoneware rendition includes a single spire as a functioning birdhouse with the words “Run for the Roses” debossed on the sides.
Sturdy, artfully coiled copper makes for quick and easy hanging and a beautiful patina over time.
