Hedgehog 1 - Rustic Rusted Garden Wildlife Sculpture - Solid Steel
Well we all love hedgehogs don't we? In fact I have one that comes to visit my garden in the evenings. So we have produced a lovely hedgehog to have in your garden all year round. You can leave her in the shiny metal if you put a protective spray on her or we think she looks great rusted as she will blend into your shrub and flowers. With a spike on the bottom of her she will stand and watch the world go by in any part of your garden. If you love hedgehogs like we do here at VJ HQ why not buy her friend as well.. listed under Hedgehog 2, although be warned they will get up to great mischief together! ;0)
Size: 216mm x 192mm (including spike)
Our stunning new steel sculptures are designed to rust, but we have had so many requests for an un-rusted version we decided to supply our art in the steel format too. This allows you the choice to paint it in a colour of your liking for indoor use or if you desire the rusted style as per our image you simply leave the sculpture outside in your garden and within a week or so rust will soon be forming to give it the classic rustic finish.
Our sculptures are intended to rust & will do easily subjected to our British weather however you can speed up the process by spraying some water on the surface every few days or alternatively add a mixture of 1 part household vinegar to 20 parts water, spray or brush onto the surface a couple of times to quicken up the transformation. The steel composition at molecular level rusts only on the surface and does not penetrate deeper. It is an expensive steel that lasts a lifetime.
It's fun to watch it transform into the perfect garden sculpture!
PLEASE NOTE: should you wish to keep your sculpture in its un-rusted state you must either apply a sealant protection or matt lacquer of some kind to the bare steel, or keep it in a very dry location. All sizes are approx.
***The product is delivered in its un-rusted state: see the second image***
The metal sculptures are made to order and hand finished, therefore they can take up to 10 working days from order to deliver. Please allow plenty of time with this in mind for any gift occasion.

We aim to have most of our dispatched within 3-5 working days, but due to the nature of some of our products being made to order and also being hand made by craftspeople it can sometimes take a few days more on certain items. Please note on all pebbles and slate items the turn around time is 10-14 days.
PLEASE NOTE PERSONALISED ITEMS AND BUSY PERIODS SUCH AS CHRISTMAS, MOTHERS DAY ETC CAN BE A LITTLE LONGER DUE TO THE VOLUME OF ORDERS
But most products dispatched within 3-5 working days which we are very proud of considering most items are manufactured once the order has been processed. Our small company prides itself on using UK craftspeople with their own small cottage industries to grow and make fabulous UK products, bringing financial support to the amazing growing industry that is all around us being built by enterprising folk who work hard and love what they do!
Although hand making something may take that extra day or two longer than buying something imported and sitting in a warehouse we feel the quality and uniqueness of the product will far outweigh that extra couple of sleeps!
We pride ourselves on getting orders to you on time which is in our world pretty fast considering it did not exist before your order :)
Thank you so much for considering your order of our products and we feel proud knowing that by purchasing we are all helping the small British companies become ever so slightly larger ones.
