The story of Santa's Sleigh

This year we’re proud to be commissioned by “The Home” to produce the centerpiece of their Christmas display for December 2015.

The Home is based in world heritage village of Saltaire, West Yorkshire. The magnificent Victorian building that is Salts Mill provides a stunning retail outlet for The Home who specialise in designer homeware and furniture.

The commission was to produce a unique version of Santa’s sleigh from steel. We worked closely with The Home to produce a one off piece that was in line with their vision. The sleigh was aged using a process to produce a rustic patina and had design elements added to create a festive look.

The gallery below shows the fabrication process undertaken by the team here at Iron Octopus. The result speaks for itself.
