This wall art sculpture is handmade in rural Pennsylvania with reclaimed metal. The pattern is drawn on the metal with soapstone, cut with a hand-held plasma cutter, hand-shaped and arc welded together.
We created this piece as part of our new “Looking Up” collection celebrating the hope and joy beyond the horizon.
Each piece will have its own subtle differences; they are cut, hammered, and built by hand.
The color is hand-painted with milk paint, giving the piece a naturally uneven and textured finish. A clear finish is applied to the entire piece.
Each Gatski is a blend of imperfect materials and capable hands.
Size: 21″h x 23″w x 5″d
Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth. If outdoors, you can maintain a shiny look (optional) by applying a clear, metal enamel, available in a spray can at your local hardware store.

We made this stunning steer head with reclaimed metal and wood. First we hand draw the head pattern on the metal with soapstone and cut it with a hand held plasma cutter. We then hand hammer and weld the shapes together to form the head. Finally we mount the head on a recycled corn planter disk. We cut the horns from a large block of wood and shape them by hand.This steer head is sealed with a water-based enamel. Each head will have subtle variations. They are cut by hand and each piece of metal has slight color differences. This head can easily be hung with a nail or screw. It’s weight is approximately 15 lbs. Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth. Size: 14”h x 30”w x 12”d
