Galvanizing Delight


Peacock by metal sculptors Bill and Peach Shaw is a private commission located in Hereford. The artists used traditional metal forming techniques to create the sculpture, which was hot dip galvanized and treated to achieve the patinated effect. Finally, copper and brass fittings were added. The sculpture received a special mention within the ‘Art‘ category at this year‘s GAGAs.
