This crab art on a sheet steel canvas has various cuts that I have torched in to the piece so that once placed over a light, the cuts allow the light to bleed through at night creating. I have taken hand milled pine from Daufuskie, torched it, sanded it, then stained the wood mahogany and placed a clear coat of poly over it. This coastal art truly makes a statement.
Three Coastal Decorating Tips for Chase Allen’s Handcrafted Sculptures
1. Group/school the coastal sculptures in odd numbers….never even!

2. Play with the spacing of the sculptures and adjust for the wall space that you are using. These sculptures can be spaced out to help fit the wall so use this to your advantage. Start the school in a tight pattern and space them outward to match space available.

3. Mix up the species. Note that the mermaid sculpture looks awesome with the fish art swimming in the same direction.
