The Fox Garden Sculpture

Curvaceous, contemporary metal garden art

The Fox sculpture is one of our latest sculptures. A design that’s been on the drawing board for some time that we have now created form metal after a number of requests from customers for a Fox.

The curvaceous, contemporary design of The Fox is crafted from thick 6mm sheet steel. It’s actually ended up as quite a long piece with it’s slightly elongated body, long bushy tail emphasize the most distinctive features of the Fox whilst maintaining the long flowing curves that are a trademark of Simon’s designs. Pieces are allowed to rust naturally, the rusted finish continually evolves with time, its rich warm hues glowing in the winter sun, brightening up the garden through the winter months.

Set in the lawn, among trees or planted borders, there is no doubt that the Fox garden sculpturee make an impressive sight. But you don’t need to have a large garden, the Fox sculptures look great even in the smallest of gardens and could be mounted on an Oak base for displaying on the patio.

Installation is easy– 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 a make a slot in the ground with a garden spade and push the feet into the slot using a slight rocking motion, watering the ground also helps when the soil is baked hard.

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.
