NEW Custom Metal Garden Art
Outdoor metal art for Australian gardens
Create a unique focal point for your home, garden or commercial design project with unique metal garden artwork by Adelaide Hills artist and designer Tricia Hood. Designs are inspired by the natural environment and beauty of the Adelaide Hills property where Tricia and her artist blacksmith husband, Andrew Hood reside. These designs are new to Farmweld and there will be more to come.
Unique metal art, hand drawn and hand cut
Each item of metal art is a unique piece, hand drawn and plasma cut by hand so no two pieces of metal artwork are identical. Designs are individually drawn on the metal, then ‘tweaked’ again when plasma cut by hand.
Tricia can also custom design a stunning piece of metal art for your garden or interior in a contemporary or classic hand cut design to suit your outdoor living area or internal walls. Whatever metal art you choose, you can be guaranteed that you are taking home ‘one of a kind’.
Metal art designs can be wall mounted or made as freestanding metalart on a heavy 10mm plate of mild steel (note: this will rust so avoid placing on paved areas if steel artwork is unsealed).
The beauty of Corten steel creates a lasting impression
Each piece is cut from 3mm corten steel. This ‘sculptors’ steel weathers naturally giving each piece a beautiful natural finish. Corten steel is used in garden sculptures and public art installations for its organic appearance. When rusted, Corten weathering steel has a lovely deep brown-red oxide surface. Unlike mild steel, the layer that develops on the exposed surfaces protects the underlying metal from corroding. The layer stabilises and if exposed regenerates again when subjected to the wet-dry cycles of the weather. Therefore Corten metal sculptures don’t need to be treated in any way prior to installation for longevity.
If you prefer a more finished look, Penetrol can be applied to protect the steel and gives your metal art a lovely leathery patina.
Pieces are sold unrusted ready to weather in your garden. If you don’t like the rust finish your metal art can be powder coated on request. All powder coated pieces have an added cost as the powder coating is outsourced.
