The stag beetle is the UK’s largest beetle and is found in south-east England. Preferring oak woodland, the larvae depend on old trees and rotting wood to feed . The adults have a short life span, emerging in May to mate, they will dead by August. An endangered species.
These Metal insects are made from substantial 2mm hot rolled mild steel.
Hand made in small numbers, I hope to have one or two bare metal sculptures in stock at any one time.
As with all our sculptures, we can arrange to have them finished with an industrial powder coating.
Bare metal : £150
Powder coating will add £40 for a basic finish and take one week to complete.
Some years ago The Devon Wildlife Trust asked if I could produce some Giant Metal Insects,for use as an educational resource. The result, incorporating recycled materials when possible, proved popular and have been reproduced for RHS Rosemoor as well as numerous private commissions
