Rearing Horse

Rearing Horse

    Rearing Horse       Project Description An incredibly time consuming but elegant piece of art.  I have used used horseshoes to create a dramatic rearing horse sculpture.  As the shadows play off the shoes, a dramatic second horse appears.   Project Details Dimensions Each horse is created on its own merit.  Most horses range in height of 30 to 36 inches.  Let me know your needs and I will create one fit to your specifications.  No two are ever identical.  Delicate balance is a must to create this piece.  The body is made from used horseshoes while the mane and tail are made of new horseshoe nails.

Soap Yucca Tree

Soap Yucca Tree

      Soap Yucca Tree           Project Description This piece was commissioned for a home outside of Tuscon Arizona.  A unique ornamental sculpture was needed for a home and the homeowner had an idea.  She sent a picture of a Soap Yucca Tree to replicate.  This is what I came up with.       Project Details Dimensions This piece is made from close to 200 used horseshoes.  Each shoe was straightened and drawn to a point to represent the leaves of the yucca tree.  I first put together the trunk of the tree and followed with a strong base and leaf system.

3D Cork Tree

3D Cork Tree

    3D Cork Tree       Project Description A modification to my wall-mounted cork tree.  This is another wonderful conversation piece for the wine lover.   Project Details Dimensions The horseshoes create the tree while new horseshoe nails represent the leaves. The shoes are mounted to and within a stump collected in the Moab area. When a cork is finished simply replace the small cork ball with the used cork. This is a great way to display all those used corks. A forest can be created if needed. Media Used horseshoe, new nails and a tree stump of unknown origin. Project Feature Contact Like What You See?

Cottonwood Coffee Table

Cottonwood Coffee Table

    Cottonwood Coffee Table       Project Description A year and a half in the making but well worth the effort. More than 150 shoes create a cradle to hold the cottonwood stump and glass top. This piece is a true conversation piece as well as a functional piece of furniture. One of my most difficult pieces built so far.   Project Details Dimensions The final dimensions of the piece are 82 inches long by 44 inches wide and 21 ½ inches tall. The table comes apart in three pieces so that two average size people are able to move the piece with ease. The wood has been fitted so that the shoes will set in a very specific placement for stability.
