Tolley just finished his latest hand forged horse head sculpture. Powerfully strong and masculine, this stallion exudes intelligence and strength. Hand forged from steel he heated in his forge and hand-hammered, the feeling of flow and motion is remarkable.
The horse sculpture doesn't have a name or glossy photo yet. It's a gorgeous and VERY heavy horse sculpture topping close to 100 pounds. Tolley built the sculpture first in steel, then added antique pieces of oak that he laminated then carved, chipped and burned. He finished the piece with additional pieces of hand-forged steel. The twisting forms of the mane and posture of the ears gave the horse the final sense of intelligence and personality.
Heat and steel and wood melded into strength and power. This is a beautiful sculpture.
Commission Tolley to create a sculpture for you. Save your used horseshoes and he can incorporate them into the steel structure.
