Creating unique sculptures by bringing back to life historically worn and recycled metal

Time to hit the road! The draft horse has left on his 8000km voyage. On his way to the World Polo Championship Sydney art exhibition from October 21st-29th. Thanks to Selina Hitches for the invite.

Molly was less than impressed when I told her she wasn't going๐Ÿ˜‚

Jordan Sprigg SculpturesThanks everyone for the kind words. I actually only took it to Perth, it will be freighted by truck to Sydney and back. Yes he certainly got plenty of strange looks on the road๐Ÿ˜ณ

Jordan Sprigg Sculptures added 7 new photos โ€” in Narembeen, Western Australia.

"The Australian Draught Horse": A half tonne clydesdale horse strolling back to the stables after a hard days work. A commissioned piece to be permanently installed at the Narembeen Shire Hall. Constructed from retired tools, machine parts and farm scrap and approximately 400 hrs of construction time.

But first, this guy will be heading across the Nullarbor for the World Polo Championship Sydney Art Exhibition curated by Selina Hitches from October 21st - 29th. Hope to see you there!

Make sure you tag all your horse riding mates!

Robyn LordThank you Jordan for sharing this exquisite sculpture with us on FB. I really like the detail on the mane and the hooves. I love it all but those bits stood out. Best wishes for the exhibition, I am sure you will get some work from it. Please keep posting your work.

Kathy MilesAmazing piece of work. Creative use of materials. Real to life subject. Not some arty interpretation or something obscure that no one "gets". Bunbury city council should take note. Well done and good luck with the trip east.

Janey ColquhounJill Parnham what a fabulous piece of work! All the old tools, metal scraps left at our York farm could have made a few of these, how fabulous would that have been. Some people are just so talented, plus preserving a bit of history, I like it!!!!

Barry JonesThe Goolwa RSL is a stable that housed these beautiful animals . They used to pull people and produce between Goolwa and Victor Harbor . Solid two feet thick rock walls would have kept them warm at night with a hay loft above .
