Ablaze MetalArt & Design is a metalwork artisan company creating high-quality handcrafted metal art from steel and aluminum, such as authentic native art, natural beauty, wildlife, domestic animals — into wall hangings, free-standing art, sculptural 3D art and signage for homes, businesses or garden.
They also include custom artwork meeting customer requirements.
Sandra and Walter Moses, owners/artists/artisans of Ablaze MetalArt & Design started creating these beautiful art pieces in October 2006 in Courtenay and now reside just up the road in Campbell River.
Sandra uses her inspiration and inherent artistic ability, to create and design the artwork that Walter continues to work his magic on. With his over 40 years experience working with metals and his artistic ability, he completes the elegant works of art. He makes each piece separately and through care and contemplation individually finishes the unique pieces of art.
There is a minimum of eight steps to complete the art pieces once Walter starts working with them, which then receive a high-quality protective coating, completing the distinctive finish on each piece.
Their diverse art line also includes house and garden accessories and affordable popular silhouettes to fit different decors; each piece matchless with distinct finishes such as: silver, bronzed, gold, rust, copper rainbow (multi-coloured) or painted, giving further flexibility to customize to taste.
These pieces of art can also be made to fit particular areas or they do custom work for individuals looking for one of a kind, exclusive pieces for which their motto stands. Come to the gallery and see some of their newer pieces.
Further ways in which their art can be used is as garden accessories; security insets for windows and doors; insets for gates, fireplace screens, doors and windows screens; signage and logos for businesses to name only a few.
The Pearl Ellis Gallery is always a great place to visit and to shop for that unique new piece of art for one’s home, business or as a gift. The gallery also carries a good selection of art cards suitable for all occasions.
