Oil Drum Flamingo Sculptures

  • These freestanding flamingo sculptures are are welded outside of Nairobi using recycled oil drums and scrap metal. Each flamingo is handcrafted from the ground up and exhibits its own unique characteristics.

    The sculptures can be displayed inside or outside of the home, with the metal developing a lovely patina with exposure to the elements.

    Small measures 17"L x 7"W x 48"T. Large measures 20"L x 7"W x 59"T. Size and design will vary slightly.

    Additional shipping charges may apply. Please see the shipping tab for more info.

  • Moses and his small workshop of craftsmen build their own welding machines out of copper coil, tape, steel rod, and a sheet metal housing in order to create these spectacular, metal works of art. Moses began his artistic career making furniture, but quickly switched to sculpture after an interested European buyer created a demand for his works abroad.

  • A single flamingo sculpture can often be shipped in an oversized box and may require additional shipping depending on where you live.

    Shipping for multiple sculptures requires a pallet and starts at $200. We only charge the actual shipping costs and do not charge for "handling" on our end. If shipping costs less than $200, we will charge you less.
