Spectacular Metal Animal Art

Our metal art is designed by Chris Canaan and produced by our skilled metal workers in Kenya. Chris is a British born artist from African descent. He works with various materials including clay, stone and bronze.The Juakali Collection stems from his passion for Africa, its people and its wildlife. He works closely with the metal workers in Kenya transferring his thoughts and ideas into our living sculptures.

Each sculpture is hand crafted from re-cycled metal and may take many weeks to complete. Before shipping Chris personally inspects and finishes each piece ensuring the highest quality possible.

Juakali sculptures are a great talking point for any business, each piece is unique, all being hand made. Should you want whole containers please contact Kel Campbell, info@jua-kali.co.uk 0121 733 3111, mobile 07843 657144.
