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.
