This folk art sculpture is handmade with reclaimed metal. The pattern is hand drawn on the metal with soapstone and cut with a hand held plasma cutter. The bird is then hand hammered and arc welded into shape. This woodpecker is sitting on a piece of hemlock wood that was harvested from our property.
The metal is sealed with a water-based enamel. Each piece will have subtle variations. They are cut by hand and each piece of metal has slight color differences.
This large elk head sculpture is handmade in Pennsylvania from reclaimed metal. The head is painted with milk paint. We hand draw the pattern on the metal with soapstone and cut it with a hand held plasma cutter. We then hand hammer and weld the head into shape. Finally, we attach it to a reclaimed corn planter disk.
Each head will have subtle variations. They are cut by hand and each piece of metal has slight color differences.
The metal is sealed with a water-based enamel. This piece can be hung inside or out.
This head can easily be hung with a nail or screw. It weighs approximately 15lbs.
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.
