Artist Creates Steampunk Style Anglerfish Lamps Handcrafted From Metal And Wood

Artist and sculpture Nik Burns, from the picturesque hills of Shropshire, England creates one of a kind sculptures using wood and metal.

Burns stated on his website that, “The combination of nature with machine is central to my practice and offers a common theme throughout the work.

The sculptures featured below are made predominantly from wood and metal and are designed for interior display.” Some of his works feature an Anglerfish lamp, a stag beetle, a shark, and a seahorse making a perfect garden statement piece.

“I find metal an exciting medium, the warm characteristics of copper and brass sit perfectly alongside cold unforgiving steel; contrasts intrigue me and I invite them into the creative process. Years of visiting museums have given me grounding for my work.” Below is Burns’ Anglerfish lamp. All of Burns’ work is made by commission.
