Dale the Deer

Metal Wall Sculpture

(ID: A15728)
Gatski created this deer head entirely from recycled farm machinery. The metal used for the head is thick steel from weathered farm machinery. The antlers start out as flat pieces of rusty metal. The artist hand hammers them into shape and grinds them smooth. He then hand draws the head pattern on the metal with soapstone and cuts it with a hand held plasma cutter. Next he welds the shapes together to form the head. Finally he mounts the head on a recycled corn planter disk.

The metal is sealed with a water-based enamel. This piece can be hung inside or out. Each head will have subtle variations. They are cut by hand and each piece of metal has slight color differences.

This head can easily be hung with a nail or screw.

Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth. If outdoors, you can maintain a shiny metal look [entirely optional] by applying a clear metal enamel, available in a spray can at your local hardware store.

    Comments about Dale the Deer:

    One of the reasons I got this was to lighten up my living room and keep it from being too serious, but I think Dale looks quite distinguished over my mantle. He is undeniably likable, but the fact that the sculptors were able to achieve an expression doesn't make it just whimsical, it makes it art. Lighting in photo is bad, but you can get an idea.

      Comments about Dale the Deer:

      Dale is a great companion for his buddy, Monte the Moose. I purchased Dale as a family Christmas gift for the house we are building in the mountains. To my relief, my husband appears to be a fan. We are planning to install Dale near the outdoor kitchen or over the fireplace on our covered patio. He will definitely add personality and an element of fun to our outdoor space.

        Comments about Dale the Deer:

        Dale is SOOOOO cute. I wuv him! However, he is heavier than I thought, probably over thirty pounds. So, I haven't put him over the fireplace yet, but am awaiting the guy who specializes in hanging heavy artwork. I wanted him up by Christmas but have to wait for "the guy".

        Dale the Deer is Delicious

        By 

        from Vail, Colorado

        Comments about Dale the Deer:

        Dale is on my front door and I added a wreath around his neck for Christmas. Everyone who enters tells me how great and unique he looks. He's the perfect touch for our rustic mountain home!

        The construction is solid, the finish is beautiful and the design is creative. Artful Home staff and the artist were very helpful in helping me with mounting questions.
