A stunning statement piece created from twelve used horseshoes. Truly versatile, it can be used as a door wreath, a decorative focus in any room, or decorate with your own accents to create a wreath for any season of the year. Or lay it flat for an amazing table centre piece! Place greenery or a floral arrangement in it’s centre for Summer celebrations. Or perhaps a hurricane lamp with candle for some Yuletide charm.
Every horseshoe is first heated and cleaned by hand to remove rusty nails and any dirt, surface or gravel from within the fullering. While this process takes longer than using a more industrial method we prefer it as it retains more wear marks and character and leaves a lovely rustic feel to the shoes.
Each shoe is heated again and gently shaped to a relatively uniform size so a pleasing round shape can be created from them.
Once all the shoes are cleaned and prepared they are linked and welded to the other and once again cleaned.
Please note, this item is treated in a sealant to protect from rust in an exterior environment. The sealant may wear over time so the item, if left externally for a long period, may develop a patina. We do advise you keep your wreaths away from damp and protected from the weather if you do not with a patina to develop on them over time.
Wreaths are approximately 44/48cm in diameter and may vary slightly from pictured images depending on the type of shoes used. This is all part of their charm.
Please note this is a heavy item so please make sure any fixtures or fittings you use to display your wreath are secure and strong enough for the weight.
