Ocean Outpost Blogs About Daufuskie Island Recently, John Flanagan from Ocean Outpost visited Daufuskie Island and wrote a nice blog about his visit. Take a second to see what this first-timer to Daufuskie had to say about his day on our Island. http://oceanoutpost.com/daufuskie-island-out-of-the-main-stream/ Here is an excerpt from the blog: We went to […]
Explore Daufuskie Island, For The First Time Ok, you love Daufuskie right? You have bravely explored all the dirt roads, walked the beaches, met the locals, eaten at Marshside Mama’s, visited Silver Dew Pottery & The Iron Fish Gallery, etc. and you know this place like the back of your hand right? I don’t […]
At 14’ x 8’ feet long, the Iron Fish Bones handcrafted sculpture is made of 16-gauge welded scrap iron. Chase originally designed the sculpture as an outdoor installation for his studio on Daufuskie Island, but because it has sparked so much interest among visitors, he decided to design it for a wall instead! The picture […]
Daufuskie Island is a place where life moves at a slower pace. What’s most unique about this island is that there’s no bridge connecting it to the mainland. Accessible only by ferry, Daufuskie is the ultimate spot if you’re looking for a uniquely beautiful getaway. There are no cars, no obnoxious crowds to fight through, […]
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.
Did you know that Spartina 449, the nationally celebrated women’s hand bag & coastal apparel brand, had their first model shoot for their first line of handbags at my gallery on Daufuskie Island(see photo below). Kay Stanley, owner of Spartina 449, has been a good friend, neighbor, and customer. To be quite honest, Kay is an inspiration to me because she has a track record of success but most importantly, she works with a smile and gets the job done. In a short amount of time, this savy businesswomen has built Spartina 449 into a nationally recognized brand. So in short, my welding mask is off to Kay for her vision and hard work. I am proud to have played a tiny part in the beginning of this play. Congrats and here’s to your future.
