The designs are chalked out on flattened steel oil drums and then cut out
with a mallet and chisel. This art form began in the late fifties with a
blacksmith whose name was Georges Liataud. Many talented sculptors have
since followed. These works are perhaps the most innovative in sculpture
since Calder's Mobiles and grace such prestigious institutions as the
Museums of Modern Art in Paris and New York.
These sculptures are made to be used inside or outside. Outside they
eventually do begin to turn a beautiful patina. Should you prefer the
original finish, you may choose to take it down every 18 to 24 months and
spray it with a clear gloss varnish. This can be found in any art store or
hardware store. We recommend Krylon Crystal Clear.
