Welcome to our world: Made at the sign of the “Iron Snail”.

Hi, Welcome to the home of Iron Snail. I’m Edward and I build the sculptures along with my partner, Claire, who assists with design. We live in Thornbury, near Bristol.

I have always enjoyed creating things, be it kites, knives or metal work. I enjoy the idea of taking kitchen utensils, hand tools and garden tools and reusing them in new and unusual contexts.

All our work is original and many items are made to order. Due to the availability of certain items sculptures may vary slightly from those you see on the website. Many of the cutlery items are recycled.  The website photos represent the sculptures made-to-date and some of the colours used previously. Not all items are in stock. For out of stock items, that require powder coating, the turn-around time can be 2-4 weeks but this isn’t definite so please contact The Iron Snail if you have a deadline and/or can’t wait that long.

We are happy to recreate any of the sculptures on this website. We would also be delighted to take on a commission and put together a proposal around any subject or theme you may have in mind.  Please see Sculpture Details page for further information on sculpture fixtures and fittings.

The sculptures make unique gifts for birthdays, Christmas and other celebrations and cost from as little as £12.  If you find something you would like to buy just give us a ring or email us to discuss your requirements and delivery costs.  We hope to add stock details in the near future as well as accept payment via Paypal. Until then payment can be made online by bank transfer, in person at your branch, or by cheque.

The website is still a work in progress so be sure to check the site often to see what changes. New sculptures are always in the pipeline so keep up-to-date with our Blog page.

Thank you for your interest and happy browsing!
