This piece was commissioned to represent the Harewood area of Nanaimo. It pays homage to it’s history of small five acre farm parcels that made up a large part of the area. It is located on 5th and Bruce ave in the Harewood area, Nanaimo. BC
The hoops are are old wagon tyres from my buddies acerage. The goat and rooster are life sized and forged from 1/8" steel plate

Must be a joy to go to work in the morning creating this art.

The early bird gets the worm but its the second mouse that gets the cheese.

Your very artisticIly talented!! I know lots of farmers out here in Alberta that would love those. Nice work!

That’s amazing. Looks incredible. I assume it’s going to be outside. I guess 1/8 plate can rusty away for decades without actually damaging anything. Is it finished with something? Or just allowed to take its natural course?

Yes, I acid etch it first and then apply an exterior clear coat. Needs to be touched every few months for the first year and then 1-2/year after that. Sherri, if you know people that would be interested, please pass along my info. angellos@westcoastarts.com cheers

Next time I’m over in Nanaimo I must look out for your art pieces. They are very beautiful.
