David Murphy

With 27 years experience in engineering and design, David Murphy makes Brass and steel sculpture and furniture for gardens. The sculptures are one-off commissions, they are designed with the client to collaborate with the craftsmanship and expertise that David provides.

Clients are guided through the elements of the process: First, their choice of preferred material; then choice of shape -sphere, egg shaped or a flat or curved screen; and finally the design of the elements that make up the sculpture. Ideas include leaves, trees, planets, stars, flowers, birds, butterflies, as well as abstract shapes In fact pretty much any shape can be incorporated into the design.

 Different finishes and all colours are possible. Using patination we can create various different colours and tones. Verdigris - green - is just one example. The colours and tones change thoughout the day and can also be illuminated creating a beautiful sculpture after dark.

All processes are talked through and discussed at each stage. The project will start with a site visit, followed by design drawings, through to the design, construction, and finally, delivery and installation.


David Murphy Sculptures are crafted to withstand all extremes of weather and are sure to give many years of pleasure to you and future generations. A centrepiece or focal point for any garden.
