Horseshoe Art ~

Since this week was National Farrier’s Week, I decided to highlight some really  cool horseshoe art and their artists!
William Wilson
Lives in: England
William Wilson is an self-taut sculptor that produces Life size animals, both wild and domesticated. He works in steel, bronze, clay and horseshoes. His inspiration comes from the wild landscape and all animals. I love his beautiful horseshoe horse statues!
Here is an article about him:
Here’s a few of his horseshoe statues!

Tom Hill

Tom Hill is a 27 year-old self-taught sculptor who for the last 6 years has been working with recycled horseshoes to create life-size animal sculptures. Tom utilizes a gas forge, anvil and hammer as well as various welding techniques to heat and shape the horseshoes to create his sculptures. 

Tom specializes in equine sculpture but has also created a wide range of sculptures such as hedgehogs, squirrels, ducks, herons, swans, pigs, hares, badgers, different breeds of dogs, lions, cheetahs, stags, camels, horses and elephants, all of which are life size.  

To date much of Tom’s work has been sold internationally with pieces going as far as America and Canada.
Tom has an ambition to create a 30′ rearing horse made from horseshoes, but he is just looking for the right place for it to be exhibited.

    I have recently seen a black and white border collie made with horse shoes. Did you do this or know who did?

      Hi Gigi, no, I have not. As you can see, I feature only horse art on The Flying Shetlands. If I do come across the artist, I will reply with the name here. Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you come again!
