Interior and exterior sculpture and garden art
Welcome to the Iron Vein website, the unique resource for interior and garden art, and outdoor garden sculpture.
Iron Vein Steel Sculpture is the result of the collaboration between designer makers Victoria Govan and Richard Warner.
Their point of origin was cutting and welding reclaimed steel which they felt had an intrinsic beauty and value which went beyond its mere industrial function, and had been discarded thoughtlessly at great ecological expense.
They create beautiful sculptural work for inside and out; stylish and contemporary, but simplistic and thoughtful.
About their organiform garden sculptures Richard said:
Of course you don’t need any particular ‘type’ of garden for this kind of sculpture: they can be slotted into holes drilled in hard landscaping such as decking, stone or wood, or simply popped into a planter!
“Quite a few clients have opted to commission wooden plinths from us as well so they can have the sculptures indoors – and they do look fabulous if you have the space!”
Rain or shine, summer or winter, indoors or out, a piece of Iron Vein sculpture provides a beautiful and long lasting visual presence.
Thank you for taking the time to look at this site, and I hope Iron Vein can be of assistance to you.

The name Iron Vein was chosen after many hours of thought, trying to come up with a name that refers to
the stratification of the Earth, and the mineral deposits that contain the ore which is smelted
for steel, and is also representative of the strength of arm needed to work the material.
Iron Vein produce unique contemporary interior and exterior metal work, and home and garden art, including:
Steel furniture, steel garden furniture, steel sculpture, steel garden ornaments and various objects d’art.
The furniture includes:
Benches, chairs, stools, chaise longues, swing seats, tables, balcony and bistro sets, spike tables, coffee tables, patio tables and dining tables.
The seating and table tops can be from slate, glass, toughened glass, sandblasted glass, exterior grade hardwood ply, oak or similar hardwood, softwood, or most recently recycled plastics from a number of different materials, which have very different visual finishes whilst remaining UV stable for outdoors. For indoors the list is even greater.
The sculptural forms which are inspired by nature include:
Poppy form, flower pods, cactus groups (cacti), agave of different sizes, palms, bulrushes, onion abstraction, sprouting bulb, wheat, grasses, chives, windswept trees, daisies, alliums, mushrooms and apples.
Their sculpture also includes representations of birds, dragons and dancing figures.
They make pieces which are decorative in the winter when plants have died back and beds and borders are bare, and can also be supportive to your precious, treasured and delicate plants in the summer months, when one day of typically capricious British weather can ruin a display or sadly snap a favourite bloom just before its peak.
If there is anything you have always wanted made for you from steel, or if you are just curious about how much a well crafted, enduring piece of steelwork would cost, contact us, and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
In terms of longevity, steel will not crack, warp or rot in the way that wood will. The metal can be left to weather or treated in a number of ways to make it last well into the future.
