A Herd of Giraffe Garden Sculptures
Curvaceous, contemporary metal garden sculptures and garden art
The Giraffe’s are our latest garden sculptures, a new design thats more of a contemporary sculpture, than a straight replica. I particularly like the large circular holes to represent the patchy skin of a Giraffe, it’s something I spent some time thinking about. As usual the simple solutions always seem to look the best.
I’ve made the Giraffe’s from 8mm metal to give added strength to the slender neck and legs. The larger of the sculptures stands at 2 meters and smaller at 1.5 meters and have extended legs that simply slot into the ground or can be concreted in for extra security. The sculptures have a rusted finish that is in it’s early stages of development in the photos and is glowing in the warm winter light. The sculptures could also be galvanised and treated to give a mock lead finish.
We’ve had the first pair in our own garden for a week or so before delivery and have grown rather fond of them, I think we may have to make another two for ourselves. Can’t quite decide whether to place the sculptures in open garden or among trees as if they were feeding.
Delivery – the Giraffe’s are make to order and it usually takes around five weeks to complete the work. We treat the surface with a rust accelerator so the sculptures arrive with the rusted finish in it’s early stages of development.

Europe / Worldwide – We have delivered sculptures all over the world. If you need a delivery outside the UK please email email@example.com or contact us using the contact us page.
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.
