Stainless Steel Garden Sculpture
Hard and strong
Stainless steel is the hardest material we work with, and requires all the expertise of our welding team to create the smooth and perfect stainless steel pieces made by David Harber. But this toughness also means that our stainless steel garden sculptures are the most durable of all. “everything we make is intended to last for centuries. Stainless steel pieces should be around for millennia” explains David Harber.
Again, due to its toughness, engraving on stainless steel is hard work. But the resulting text or pointers will be crisp, clean and legible for many generations.
Stainless steel is known for its corrosion resistance. The high quality marine grade stainless steel used almost exclusively by David Harber is especially resistant. In harsh environments, when sculptures are located close to the sea, for example, and there is a concern over the impact of constant salt water, we use the extra corrosion resistant duplex or even super-duplex grade of the metal.
When polished, these high grade stainless steels retain their shine regardless of outdoor conditions, enabling stainless steel garden sculptures to glint and glisten, and reflect their environment whatever the weather. Using these reflective qualities in gardens and outdoor spaces is a key feature of David Harber's garden art.
Crisp, clean stainless steel works well in contemporary style gardens. For David Harber, this contemporary quality plays into another important inspiration, that of reinvigorating old ideas. Having an ancient sundial design, for example, in a modern material like stainless steel is a thought-provoking way to bring history up to date in your own garden.
