East Anglian Galvanizing is celebrating a successful ongoing partnership with a renowned sculptor as she unveils her latest spooky piece.
The plant galvanized various pieces of steel on behalf of Sarah Spring of sculptors and blacksmiths, Wicked Weezel & Old Crow, to create a life-sized skeleton chair as well as a number of other sculptures.
The chair, which was produced using various metal off-cuts by Sarah Spring of Wicked Weezel & Old Crow, will be used at her gothic-style wedding reception and is the first of four spooky seating arrangements to be made for the dining table.
Sarah explained: “Bringing the skeleton chair to life has been such a fantastic and personal project to me, and required lots of small and tricky details as well as many different shapes of steel. I used the various sizes of solid round bar to make up his bones, and for his hands and feet I heated and hammered the steel into place. "Many of my sculptures are put on permanent outdoor display, so I call upon the team at East Anglian Galvanizing to provide a hot-dip galvanizing treatment so that they are protected from weathering and other types of damage, with the benefit that it also gives them a superb finish.”
After taking ten days to create, the skeleton chair named Decomp, is being situated at the Olive Grove Garden Centre in Oundle. Sarah’s other sculptures include a haunted house, spooky tree, a large crow and owl, as well as a jumping hare.
Selwyn Parrish, explained: “Sarah is incredibly talented and is an outstanding artist. The Skeleton Chair in particular incorporates so many different elements and materials, it’s just really impressive. We are very much looking forward to working with her in the months and years ahead.”
