I'm a freelance writer living in the beautiful river town of Mannum in South Australia dreaming of the day I can retire from the 9-5 to write full-time.

Wander the Garden of Arty Delights
Driving the road between Angaston and Nuriootpa, it's hard to miss the 'cyborg,' (or 'droid' depending on who you ask) that stands guard in front of number 274, the home of the Steelsculpt Garden Gallery.

Steelsculpt is the creation of Tony Howard, a local sculptor who has found a way to turn his passion into a growing business.

Wandering around the garden, I was struck by the variety of creations on show and all for sale at very reasonable prices. Tony is also able to custom make planters, fire-pits, letterboxes, wall art, gates, railings, fences and unique gabion walls.

Tony has always had a passion for metal sculpting and last year took the bold step of leaving his full-time employment to pursue his art. Since then his work has been shown as part of the South Australia Living Arts (SALA) festival and several of his commissioned works can be seen installed around the Barossa area.

He has a workshop onsite and is planning to extend the current facility to incorporate a larger display and a contemporary blacksmithing forge.

Tony welcomes members of the public to wander through the garden and admire his works, and is also happy to take orders. If you can sketch it up, then chances are he can build it.
