Allen owns and operates The Iron Fish Gallery on Daufuskie Island, S.C. From fish to mermaids, the gallery, which opened in 2001, houses dozens of Allen’s handcrafted iron […]
This piece is actually made of 16 gauge welded scrap iron. I designed this sculpture for my studio on Daufuskie (see photo with a younger me in overalls)and finally had enough people ask about it to where I decided to design it for the wall and instead of the post in the ground like the one I have at the studio. Of course, the wall sculpture is a fraction to ship too because it is 7 pieces instead of one large one. The photo w/ the red wall is courtesy of collectors Gib & Lindsay Daniel of Lindsay Daniel Architecture in Charlotte, NC . They have created the perfect back drop for this piece. I love how the red and the rust play off of each other.
Coastal Conservation Association and The Iron Fish Gallery sculpts a great fund raising partnership!
I am proud to say that I have created a respectable collection of “doormat” flounder sculptures for Coastal Conservation Association to auction off for their fundraising events in Texas, South Carolina, and Georgia. Each metal flounder sculpture measured approximately 29” long and has two signature eyes. Please look for these iron fish sculptures at the Coastal Conservation Association events in Texas, South Carolina, and Georgia. Bid them up past their $225 value because you will get a one of a kind piece of art and you know the money goes to a great organization. About 85 were commissioned for this “corporate order” so enjoy fishing for them.
Many thanks to CCA of Texas, South Carolina, and Georgia for finding value in my handcrafted iron fish art
Each coastal sculpture is handcrafted by renowned coastal sculptor Chase Allen of Daufuskie Island, SC. Chase has been creating these nautical decorations for over 12 years now and has been featured in national magazines such as Coastal Living, Southern Living, and Charleston
