Where will you open your next gallery? The Iron Fish would thrive in Charleston or Beaufort! Hopefully someone in Beaufort will make The Iron Fish work.

Got the Southern Living Magazine at the Melrose General Store. It’s a great article! You need to get several of them. Mom bought two iron fish sculptures. You can call her here at the house.

I ordered a small school of iron fish for my beach house in Virginia. I am a huge enthusiast of coastal decoration and absolutely love my new sculptures. They were well worth the wait.

We were here from Irricana, Alberta Canada. We found this to be a wonderful, no pressure way to shop. This antiqued coastal decor is absolutely original! Thanks.

Chase Allen is an inspiration in both life and art. He is a man who decided what was important in life and followed his dream with discipline, action and creativity. His work is a reflection of his patience as it took years for him to develop the formula he uses to give his sculptures the look of vintage pieces worn in by time and environment. When I put a piece of Chase’s art in my home it reminds me to pursue my own creative passions and to take the time and years to perfect artistic expression.

Wow! Did we have fun on Daufuskie-Your work is exceptional. We took an iron fish sculpture. Please call for credit card.

Hi Chase – Nearly 2 years ago I ordered the large blue crab from you and it sure does look good in my kitchen. I liked the quality of the work and material. Going to do my bathroom over and thought a nice school of fish might do the trick on the back wall. Thanks again and will be looking forward to receiving them.
— Bob Hemberg
This is the perfect coastal decor for our beach house. Our decoration efforts have been stalled until now. Hope to see you one day on Daufuskie. Thanks!

I have been collecting the metal art pieces by Chase for several years and I find his work quit remarkable. The craftsmanship and artistry is superior to other artist in his field. Anyone purchasing his pieces would be making a wise investment for the future.

My new collection of fish sculptures are what I consider the ideal coastal decoration, or should I say coastal decor?! Can’t wait to add more.
