The story behind Rusty Rooster metal garden art...
Who would want rusty?
"Wow, I love it! Can you make something for me?"
And so our business began...
Steve has always loved working with metal, growing up on a farm there was always something requiring his attention, needing to be welded, grinded, cut from metal. Then one day he finally treat himself to a new plasma cutter and....
..."I've made you something for the garden" he proudly announced, "It's cut from
rusty old metal but I kinda like it"
Family and friends all loved it, especially the rusty colouring and markings, and so began the questions "What else can you cut?", "Can you make something for me?", and finally "You should turn this into a business!".
So in the spring of 2016, Rusty Rooster was born.
We experimented with rusting new metal, we loved the rusty patina we achieved, the rich warm hues, the natural and unique markings.
Inspired by the Fenland Countryside and all things farming, we started to dream up more and more designs.....
Steve and I really enjoy working together, we make a great team. Steve has the brain for business whilst loving to get his hands dirty - cutting, welding, rusting and all things requiring manual labour. I'm the organised one, with the creative flare, turning our ideas into original designs and of course getting my hands dirty when needed.
We love our rusty metal garden art and hope you do to!
