Recycled Metal Menagerie

We found these amazing and amusing handcrafted recycled metal animals at the recent gift show. What drew us in were these human-sized metal frogs. These anthropromophic metaloids are "real enough" that you want to walk up and talk to them! 

Alas, these are a bit too large for our shop, so we targeted several shelf-sitting critters and a clutch of chickens. (If you are interested in the frogs, let's talk.)

The animals are the brainchildren of a San Rafael enterprise. They are handcrafted in Indonesia. While these sculptures retain the folksy, rustic look, the craftspeople take care to round off sharp edges and grind down welding spots. After painting and smoothing, these are coated with a protective polyurethane, so they are safe for outdoors.

Fishing Alligator and Yoga Dog ($89.95 each)
Relaxing Frog and Professor Rooster ($89.95 each)
Martini Pig ($89.95 each)
Hen and Rooster ($64.95 each)
Clutch of Chicks ($19.95 each)
These are now in stock.
