This Shooting Star 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.
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.
This can easily be hung with a nail or screw.
Size: 15″h x 31″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 created this Elk head sculpture with reclaimed metal. We hand draw the pattern on the metal with soapstone and cut it with a hand held plasma cutter. The antlers start out as flat pieces of rusty metal. We hand hammer them into shape and grind them smooth. Finally we mount the head on a recycled corn planter disk.The metal is sealed with a water-based enamel. This piece can be hung inside or out. Each head will have subtle variations. We cut them 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. If outdoors, you can maintain a shiny metal look [entirely optional] by applying a clear metal enamel, available in a spray can at your local hardware store. Size: 26''h x 16''w x 13''d
