Although designed as a work for an indoor space, It would be wrong not to allow the Woodlouse access to it’s natural environment!
Some customers wish to leave this sculpture to the elements, allowing the the surface to change and evolve over time, eventually becoming encrusted with red rust. The affect can be quite striking.
For those who wish to discourage rust and maintain their sculptures in pristine condition, we can arrange to have them treated with an industrial ‘powder coat’ paint finish offering a huge range of colours and some textured finishes (like the matt black texture, below)
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
