Create a special place in your house or garden with metal art
Are you looking for metal art to fill a spot on your wall? A bare patch in the garden? A metal art feature near your entertainment area or a decorative metal screen to conceal the utility areas of your garden? Working from our Adelaide Hills studio, we produce unique metal art, hand made just for you.
Metal art and sculptures are available either freestanding or as wall mounted artworks. Metal art looks awesome when backlit with a light box or in contrast, as freestanding panels lit from the front so the shadows dance on walls.
Functional Metal Art
Do you need a barrier in the garden, then why settle for a boring gate or fence? Wouldn’t you rather see an eye-catching metal screen or a steel sculpture that ‘suits’ your garden? Artist blacksmith Andrew Hood, forges large and small metal sculptures. Sculptures are made using recycled or new materials. Include a metal panel with artistic cut-outs in the frame of your gate so they become works of art. Investing in metal art adds value to your property.

That having been said, some pieces are a collaboration with Andrew giving a hand.
Where a natural, rust finish is desired Corten steel (also known as sculptors steel) is a great option because, unlike mild steel, it forms a stabilised layer of rust on the surface. In addition, metal panels can be powder coated in a wide range of colours.
Do you dream of a sculpture made from recycled materials in your shed? Farmweld can recycle your old steel objects to make unique sculptures with meaning to you. Blacksmith’s forge hot steel into all sorts of shapes and forms, thus Andrew can change the shape, texture and look of the original item to make unique items just for you. Minor hammer marks and imperfections in hand-beaten steel contrast starkly with perfect looking, mass produced machine made metalwork. For this reason, handworked metal art products are often considered heirlooms that are handed down to the next generation of homeowners or family. Consequently, metal art is an investment in your home.
