It is made out of 16 gauge stainless steel. I really like this gauge as it has a nice feel to it, but does not make the item too heavy for hanging. In fact, you can easily hang this piece without finding a stud in the wall. The piece is cut out of stainless steel, by hand, with a plasma cutter. I do not use any kind of automated machine to mass produce these!
These are hand-made in my shop, one at a time! There will be slight differences between each one I make. I feel this makes each one a true original! Each piece is signed and dated by me.
I work very hard to promote myself. I'm in several galleries throughout the US. I have been commissioned to make many custom ordered pieces. This is the perfect addition to your ocean themed room, or beach home decor!
After cutting the piece out, I then grind it, and heat-treat it. This produces the beautiful browns, blues & purples!The grinding is what produces the lines throughout the piece that shimmer as you walk by it! This piece is intended for indoor hanging, but it could be placed outdoors.
I have been making metal art for many years, and I can assure you, the pieces that are left indoors as they are intended to be, look the same as the day they left my shop! The picture does not do this piece justice. Metal is very hard to photograph. I have tried to photgraph this piece from several slightly different angles to show you how much it truly shimmers as you walk past it, the colors change, and it makes it come alive!This piece is approximately 26 inches tall, 23 inches wide & sits about 1 inch off the wall. This could also be made to order in a size that's appropriate for the space you have to work with. Let me know the dimensions and I can make an Etsy listing just for you. Please feel free to view my other works of art at my store. There you'll find anything from the small and whimsical, to the large wall hanging that's the crowning focal point over your fireplace, entry way, den, family room, or office wall!
