Metal Stag head wall art - made from a vintage bicycle and forged steel

Stag head humane hunting trophy wall art remade from a Phillips vintage bicycle.

Inspiration

I created this humane hunting trophy Stag head wall art for Channel 4’s ‘Old House New Home’ with George Clarke.

I was asked originally to use the seat and handle bars of the reclaimed push-bike to make a bulls head trophy.

However, I felt that there was still a great deal of bike left over that could be used to create something far more dramatic & unusual.

Which is when I asked if I could make a stags head hunters trophy with an industrial twist!

George Clarke’s team were more than happy for me to run with the idea & make the piece how I would like to.

I can recreate this or something similar for you, to your custom requirements.

The bike used for this industrial upcycling project was a vintage Phillips bike, vintage bikes have the correct metal parts in the seat that form the face.

However, I could create this with a newer reclaimed (potentially free) push bike & create the facial features etc with other metal parts.

The purchase price listed is for labour and welding materials & equipment only – NOT the bike.

Depending upon your requirements you can either purchase the bike and send it to me, or I can purchase the bike for you – after agreeing the budget.

Or I can try to salvage a free one which would most likely not be vintage.

 

You will be invoiced for the cost of the bike and any delivery costs on top of the cost of this product listing price. This is because the price & weight of vintage items fluctuates.

The bike used for this build was £100 including postage, vintage bikes tend to be around £75 just for the bike.

Description

This industrial style Stag head wall art was handcrafted from a vintage Phillips bicycle

Inspiration

I created this trophy head sculpture from salvaged bike parts, I wanted to make a humane hunters trophy with wow-factor.

It was a commissions for Channel 4’s, ‘Old House New Home’ with George Clarke.

The brief was to create a piece of industrial style wall art from bike salvage to feature in the renovation of a period property into a sustainable home.

 

The production company initially asked for the handle bars and seat to become something reminiscent of a bulls head, however – I had seen this done quite a lot before & I really wanted to put my own spin on the piece and create something unique.

I would also reuse more of the push-bike this way, which I was pleased about. I was given creative control of the piece & the rest as they say, is history!

 

When you purchase this item I will source a bike and recreate this piece.

The purchase price listed is for labour and welding materials & equipment only – NOT the bike.

Depending upon your requirements, & whether you require a vintage bike, or would be happy with a newer model.

 

You can either;

  • Purchase the bike and send it to me,
  • Or I can purchase the bike for you after agreeing the style/era/budget
  • Or ask if I can salvage a free scrap bike if the age/style is not specified.

You will be invoiced for the cost of the bike (see above) and any delivery after this has been specified by you.

(The vintage bike used for this build was £100 including postage, they tend to be around £75 just for the bike if you require it to be vintage. If you’re not in a hurry sometimes you can get lucky!)

*No Animals were harmed in the making of this wall art*

If you don’t mind the age/style of the bike I may be able to source one for free.

You can also supply your own bike & ship it or drop it to me in Brighton, BN2.
