About this project

I collect large quantities of old decorative tin which is selected for colour, cut to shape, sanded and then either soldered or sewn into place with copper wire onto a wire armature.

They can be as small as a Wren up to a life size Red Deer Stag’s Head. Due to the materials used they are not suitable for the outdoors as they would rust and discolour if exposed to the elements.

Pricing

£150 — £3000
