Stragnell Art

Unique Metail Sculptures Inspired by Nature.


Found object and recycled metal sculptures

Stragnell Art showcases the work of its owner, Sanford Stragnell. Sanford uses found objects and recycled metals to create unique sculptures often inspired by nature.

After some 40 years of work in the construction field, saving raw materials, Sanford's metal working hobby is now his full-time passion. His converted barn houses his studio and a gallery. He is also working on a garden labyrinth where he displays his larger outdoor pieces.

Sanford sells over 50+ designs from the smallest copper snail to a life size hammered copper sunflower. Maple leaves, dragonflies, spiders, turkeys, herons, flowers, frogs, cattails, stars, butterflies and fish are just some of his creations.
