Project Description

Herdwick Sheep Sculptures

Contemporary garden sculptures crafted rusted metal

Our sheep sculpture takes it’s inspiration from the sheep on the Lakeland fells with their thick woolen coats, the swirls and curves resulting in a piece with real character. The Sheep sculptures are created from steel plate which is untreated and left to the elements to oxidise naturally forming a richly coloured rust patina, the warm hues of the rusted metal glow in the evening sun. The Sheep sculptures make a real feature in the garden and are available in two sizes.

We make the Sheep sculpture to order and would aim to deliver in 3-4 weeks from the receipt of your order. If you need your sculpture sooner please contact us and we will do our best to get it to you for the required date.

For a large garden there is no doubt that the larger groups make an impressive site, set in the lawn or among trees. But you don’t need to have a large garden to install a group, two or three of our Sheep sculptures can look great even in the smallest of gardens. Please see the diagram below for dimensions.

We have listed a few ideas for herd sizes and offer a discount on our individual prices when buying a herd. These are only suggestions, please do get in touch for pricing on your own ideas.

 

Installation is easy– the sculptures can be carried by one to two people. The legs of the sculptures have been extended and enlarged to allow for easy installation and can be placed straight into compacted earth or concreted in. Simply push the sculpture into the ground. If the ground is hard, we’ve found it helps to make slots in the ground with a garden spade and push the spikes into the slots using a slight rocking motion.

Sculpture Finish / Aftercare – Our sculptures are supplied with the rusting process well under way and you will find that the colour will continually evolve with time particularly during in the fist year. During the first year it’s quite common for the surface to flake, The flaking is all part of the rusting process, its the layer of mill scale that’s formed when the steel is manufactured. Eventually the whole deer will peel it’s layer of scale becoming darker. Then over a period of about six months it will gradually turn and settle down to a more golden colour with a slight mottling.

Any scuffs or marks to the surface will gradually disappear over time as the rust patina develops. Birds do seem to make a habit of leaving their mark on the sculptures. From experience we have found the best way of removing them is to scrub the marks with an old toothbrush and a little water.
