Desert Hiker Ornament
Love hiking in with the Desert!
rustic steel ornament
Sized approximately 4"round
Each piece is thoughtfully designed and created from scratch by husband and wife team, Brandon and Erin Spangler, in rural north Georgia.
Their creations are made out of 14 gauge hot-rolled mild steel covered with a thin layer of black oxide (magnetite) which is responsible for its dark gray/bluish tint. While this provides a level of protection against corrosion, a beautiful patina of rust can be brought out by a minimal amount of exposure to humidity. If the rust is unwelcome you may rub grade 3 coarse steel wool over the top to remove any and/or all rust.
Metals are inherently recyclable and can be used over and over again, minimizing their negative environmental impacts and saving energy. So please keep in mind that each piece may vary from the picture as our raw metal is created from recycled steel giving little variations (such as color) to each sheet.
Each piece is hand ground to a finish and a burlap twine is hand tied to the top completing each metal creation with a handmade quality.
