About Faraway Finds

Faraway Finds provides a wide range of metal garden sculptures only available directly from us or our retail partners. By importing our art directly from indigenous African artisans under Fair Trade arrangements we are able to obtain competitively-priced, hand-crafted African wildlife art from genuine sources. We specialise in different types of garden sculptures offering excellent quality and value. Many designs are available to add beauty and grace to any garden, landscape or interior design setting.

  
Other bird sculptures include local African birds such as Metal HeronsMetal Cranes, in addition to the ever popular Metal Guinea Fowl and Metal Pheasants.

If it's animal sculptures you prefer we have Metal PigsMetal Rabbits and the more exotic Metal Warthogs and our stunning Tall Metal Giraffes made to a quality unavailable elsewhere in the UK for the equivalent price.

We supply our metal garden sculptures to numerous outlets including selected independent garden centres, landscape design companies, art galleries and directly to the public. 

Our Metal Garden Sculptures are mostly made from recycled steel, usually in the form of old drums. The steel is cleaned to remove its outer covering and any inner residue. Hand tools are then used to cut and form each sheet into a convenient size. Each design is set out onto the metal before the component parts are cut out.

       

The parts are beaten into shape before being welded into position to develop the desired structure, some of the feathers are cut and lifted up and away from the body to form a more life-like appearance to each piece. In some instances additional texture is added during the welding process to further enhance the visual appeal. The thin legs and necks are made from metal rebar.

    

Once the excess metal and welding marks are removed, the birds are allowed to develop a natural patina, this is then locked in protective coats of external varnish to create an exquisite work of art.

All of our animal sculptures are hand-crafted and it is the nature of the product that there may be some variation in colour, texture and finish, as well as slight irregularities.
