Red Snapper Metal Beach Art
Situated along a dirt road deep in Daufuskie's maritime forest, this gallery 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 school of three (one in each size.) Each fish 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.
