Situated along a dirt road deep in Daufuskie's maritime forest, Chase Allen's shop, The Iron Fish Gallery & Studio, is a treasured local landmark. Visitors will find a yard filled with handmade metal sculptures and a historic Gullah constructed house covered in classically painted iron fish sculptures. More often than not, they'll also find the self-taught artist himself, hammering, cutting, forging and welding under the shade of a moss-draped oak.
These sculptures are all original and are available in three sizes...or as a colection of three (one in each size.) Each sculpture is carefully oxidized, hand-forged, welded and shaped using traditional blacksmithing and self-taught methods often using hand crafted tools. You will notice that each piece has a unique vintage finish that took the artist years to develop.
Now, shoppers like yourself visiting Cottage & Bungalow can find the same creative tokens of island life online–but with a slightly more modern payment platform. These signature handmade aquatic decorative sculptures come individually stamped, signed, dated and cleverly gift-wrapped in market paper for guaranteed freshness. Not to worry, interior design tips are included. Ideal gifts for any occasion, these iron fish sculptures are more than works of art; they're mementos of the simple life–flown in fresh from an island untouched by time.
