The Bush Metal Five | Recycled Metal Animals

Meet African Creative’s Bush Metal Five, a contemporary take on the bronze sculpture. By upcycling scrap sheet metal, we create art out of the discarded while doing our bit to reduce waste. Each piece is unique and painstakingly crafted in our studio by our two master artists, Enock and Victorinu: Enock builds the skeleton using thick gauge steel wire, Victorinu then cuts and shapes sheet metal to size, grinding and welding each piece onto the frame. The sculptures are finished off with a smoke treatment and a few coats of clear varnish. This lengthy process brings the once-scrap metal back to life in the form of African animals, elegant for interiors and durable enough for exteriors. The sculptures measure at 55 to 80 centimetres in length, and weigh 3 to 6 kilograms.
