"If you want to make something beautiful, put your heart and mind together"
Zimbolic offer a stunning range of bird and wildlife sculptures made from recycled metal.
From tiny ducklings to goliath crown crested cranes, our striking designs are guaranteed to create a talking point. Working closely with artists from Zimbabwe and Kenya, we’ve created high quality, unique sculptures that will complement any garden theme.
Established in 1998 by Jonathan Eaton, strong business ethics have always been at the heart of what we do. We use recycled metal materials and support local communities in Africa by providing stable long-term employment for our workers.
Used steel oil drums are burnished and cleaned before the artistic work begins. The metal is then cut into the different elements of the sculpture using a hand-operated guillotine. These are then hammered into shape on a large wooden tree stump. A framework is welded together, then the components are attached to it to create the individual designs. Finally, the sculpture is dipped in lacquer, enhancing the patina of the metal and giving a protective coating for outdoor display.
Ordering online is easy and secure, but if you’d like to find out more about our sculptures please call 01242 621 292 at any time.
