John & Carly Wolf – Metal Sculptures – Sheboygan Falls, WI

John (with help from daughter Carly), oxidizes automotive-grade steel, and then cuts and hand shapes each creation to give it a unique character.  Over 80 standard designs, and we have most on display in the gallery.  Great idea  for adorning gardens and enhancing your landscape.  These sculptures are equally lovely for artful accents indoors.  New items include mushroom, snail, watering can, flag, and fleur de lis, plus all traditional favorites like turtles, herons, cranes, baby cranes, cattails, lilies, horses, birds, butterflies, flowers and much more.  Priced $6-$180.  

The Wolf Family is our best selling artist these last 4 years!
We now ship or deliver – please call Ed at 608-515-6973.

"I've always noticed the little things.  Other people see a tree or a seascape - I fall in love with the leaf or the shell. I collect pieces of nature: acorns, feathers, seedpods, rocks - if it interested The Creator enough to make it, it interests me"
