This amazing Steer Head from our friends Gatski Metal is made using basic hand tools to re-purpose recycled farm machinery and scrap metal. The qualities & characteristics of the metal depends on the metal's origin and condition. Although this ever-changing material is challenging for Gatski Metal, it results in beautifully unique works of metal art. We are happy to say that each piece is essentially, "One of a Kind."
This lovely steer head is handmade with recycled farm machinery in rural Pennsylvania. The metal we use for the head is thick steel from weathered farm machinery. The head pattern is hand drawn on the metal with soapstone and cut with a hand held plasma cutter. The shapes are then hand hammered and arc welded together to form the head. The eyes are found nuts from bolts and the head is mounted on a recycled corn planter disk. This steer head is sealed with a water-based enamel. It can be hung inside or out. Each head will have subtle variations. They are cut by hand and each piece of metal has slight color differences. It can be hung with a nail or screw. Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth. If outdoors, you can maintain a shiny metal look [entirely optional] by applying a clear metal enamel, available in a spray can at your local hardware store.
Dimensions: 12"h x 24"w x 12.5"d.
