Concentrating largely on creating sculptures from old copper (cylinders etc), here are some truly amazing art forms and you actually visit the artist in his workshop, where he is happy to spend time talking with you about his work and his passion.

The first thing you notice on pushing the big nut (as in bolt) on the entrance door is the magical, metallic smell of work. Real work, Kraftwerk, work in progress, quirky work, artist's work, finished work. Then what that greets you among the imaginative sculptures...More

This is a really neat place, and definitely a must-see when visiting Reeth. The sculptures are beautiful, carefully crafted from reused metals and full of character. The shapes and colours of the sculptures are cleverly composed, and they have a really lifelike flow to them....More

We’ve been looking at craft and art places all week from Hawes to Windermere, Cockermouth, Kendal, Ambleside. Graculus Sculptures was truly memorable. Michael the sculpture was a genuine guy, and really helpful in helping us plan our commission. He’s obviously highly rated, sending pieces abroad...More
