Around the bend child safe pond cover

AROUND THE BEND, CHILD AND ANIMAL SAFE POND COVER Keeping your children and fish safe while enhancing the beauty of your garden I recently got a call from a worried Mother. She had moved into a property with a fairly big pond located directly outside the back door leading to the main garden area and has 3 young children. The loved the pond but were seeking advice on how to make it safe as it was a real danger to the family and visiting children and the parents were loosing sleep.

The Wavy Lotus Pond Cover Design

THE WAVY LOTUS POND COVER DESIGN Are you having trouble keeping your fish safe and your pond beautiful? If you are then we might have a solution for you. I often get calls from people who have built a pond. Only to have it raided every so often by the local heron. I’d like to dedicate a post specifically to this subject. In my opinion a well built pond adds a positive energy on the surrounding area. Unfortunately some have to resort to unsatisfactory protective measures once they’ve been raided a few times. This customer had...

HARAMBE MEETS KONG GORILLA SCULPTURE

HARAMBE MEETS KONG GORILLA SCULPTURE Angry gorilla sculpture hand made from sheet metal I love making wildlife sculptures and I really love trying to bring them to life in the steel. When someone gave me the idea to make a piece of wall art with the angry gorilla sculpture theme I didn’t hesitate and got on to see what I could come up with. This piece was made using 1.6mm mild steel sheet. I hammered the shape of the face and then added layers of texture to bring it to life. This gorilla sculpture is on of my favourite pieces and was the...

Double Dolphin Greco Roman style pond cover

DOUBLE DOLPHIN GRECKO ROMAN STYLE POND COVER Greco Roman style Heron and child safe pond cover with Dolphins I was asked to consult on a pond cover for a pond set in a narrow Greco Roman style garden in London. The client had a particular love for Dolphins and asked if I could incorporate a dolphin design into a plain heron safe mesh. I’d never made a dolphin before so was excited at the prospect. I like the long clean curved lines. Only problem with this is that there are large gaps for a herons head or a small child’s leg to fit...

Steel hand painted dragonfly sculpture

DRAGONFLY SCULPTURE My new dragonfly sculpture with custom pearl paint job I’ve been making dragonfly sculptures for a few years now and I love every one of the! Each and every dragonfly sculpture I’ve made has been different in one way or another due to the freestyle bending techniques I use to create the sculpture. There are however close similarities with some of the older models. This time round I wanted to improve the head and wing design. I wanted it to look a bit a bit more realist abstract. Capturing the detail of the eyes...
