Blacksmith Forged Iris Sculpture
What started out as a simple forging of a single iris flower has offered new opportunities to forge out larger iris sculptures.
This particular one shown was designed to hold 4 solar light bulbs that has a crackle finish to them. I saw these lights at a department store and just had to design a flower to go with them.
If you are not into the solar thing, these lights can be easily removed and replaced with candles.
Designed primarily as an outdoor accent piece when entertaining, but still serves as a nice sculpture for garden art.
This item features 4 separate hand forged and textured iris flowers, along with forged/textured leaves and attached to a heavy circle base. The overall project was heat treated with a torch to create unique colors and then clear coated with lacquer.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee it will never rust in some spots, but lacquer is a good finish for exterior products. While we try to cover all parts of the sculpture with lacquer, on occasion, a rust spot can develop somewhere.
This particular piece is a little less than 3 feet tall and about 24 inches wide, but extremely heavy!
Definitely will outlast our lifetime!
