Each month in 2017 we are creating a single stem flower or plant. This month it’s the Sunflower! They come with their own base (the base unscrews from the stem), or you can purchase a vase and collect them all. We will design them one at a time, but they will be all a similar size so you can fill your vase if you wish.
We will be creating just 20 of each. They are numbered and marked with a “G.” They are the perfect size for desktop, an entryway table or on a mantle.
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.
