Chomp!

Just when you thought it was safe to be out of the water... this steel behemoth swims by to bring a splash of adrenaline to your day! Measuring a full four feet long, this handcrafted beast evokes the raw energy of a great white shark. Artist VonChandler - makes his creations from solid, heavy plate steel, using welding, grinding and other techniques to bring it to life. Unlike its watery cousins, this shark can live indoors or out around your patio or garden, mounted on the wall or standing on its fins. For shark fans, there is simply no escaping its sheer awesomeness! Handmade in Fayetteville, AR.

Made in Arkansas

With a winning sense of humor and a great eye for sculpture, artist Von Chandler specializes in one-of-a-kind metalwork that is both dramatic and whimsical. Chandler is a self-described lover of art who wishes he had known his true calling way back in grade school when his intimidating teacher inquired about his aspirations. Now happily married and the proud owner of a home littered with sculptures, he enjoys nothing more than working with his hands and discussing art with other artists. He did once think he'd be a ninja when he grew up, but is kind of glad that didn't happen.

Not Happy

By

Comments about UncommonGoods Steel Bone Shark:

I was unbelievably disappointed with the product I received, I realize this is handmade but it looked nothing like the photos provided on the site. The one I received clearly did not have the time spent on it that the pictures portrayed; there was no depth in the etching, just flat looking as you can see in the picture provided. I saw the ratings on it before I purchased and they seemed good, except for the hanging part of it which I was not worried about. Not at all happy with what I received.

Very Cool!

Comments about UncommonGoods Steel Bone Shark:

He wanted a taxidermy shark for the family room. This is as close to a "real" shark as we're going to have in this house. Aaaaand he LOVES it!

Heed the warnings of us who said the packaging was awful!!!! The shark wasn't damaged, but that's not the point... It's a super cool piece but the welder doesn't seem to take pride in his work based on how he packages it.

    Gift was a big hit -- hangs in man cave

    By 

    from Des Moines, Iowa

    About Me Midrange Shopper

    Comments about UncommonGoods Steel Bone Shark:

    My husband was really happy to receive this for his birthday. He wanted to hang it indoors in the man cave instead of outdoors.

    It took us while to figure out how to hang it, but here's what worked for us...

    Get ahead of time: large format roll or piece of paper (big enough to place the shark on), a couple of packages of different size/length heavy duty screws, plastic anchors for screws, drill

    1. Place the shark on the paper, and with a sharpie,draw an outline closely around it. THEN mark the top of the "rib" spaces with the sharpie. The holes closest to the center will be closest to the wall surface.

    2. Tape the outline on the wall so you're happy with where it's going to hang.

    3. Insert the screw anchors into the wall at the marked spots where you think you need them to hang it securely -- you can drill a pilot hole right through the paper. (My husband put the anchors in, so it's a mystery to me, but you could look it up on YouTube.)

    4. Screw the screws in -- but NOT ALL THE WAY -- ours are about an inch or so away from the wall for the centermost group of "ribs".

    5. Hang the shark on the screws on the aligned ribs.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Steel Bone Shark:

      Good looking, handmade product. Only time well tell how well the metal ages in the SW Florida heat and humidity. The main drawback of this product is the ease in which it can be mounted to a wall. The jaw of the shark protrudes away from the rest of the body, so mounting it flush with the wall is not possible. I have not yet figured out how I will mount it, though I am sure with some thought, it can be done in a way which does not detract from the its appearance. Given the product is handmade, and likely fabricated locally, the seller could offer some sort of metal attachments that protrude just beyond the jaw, that will allow for easy mounting. Additionally, this would also allow them to provide sheet metal that matches that which the product is made from. Just a thought.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Steel Bone Shark:

        We struggled with how to secure this to the fence. The sharks head is approx. 5 inches wide. When I called to get instructions on how to hang this I was told to secure screws just above the rib cage. This would have required severely long screws. Instead I used two shepherds hooks. This gives me the ability to bring it in during inclement weather.

            After a little delay in delivery, Uncommon Goods, explained the reason for delay (Artist illness). I received the art work as promised. Uncommon Goods showed its professionalism do to circumstances beyond its control with a customer service department that kept me well informed and offered options and solutions. I will most certainly continue doing business in the future. As far as the art work, I must say I was pleasantly surprised how detailed and well put together the art work was. The only negative I was concerned about was a prior comment about packaging, (which I was satisfied with). I suppose you can never make everyone 100% happy.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Steel Bone Shark:

            The Shark has a great presence in our room, very eye catching. It takes a bit to figure out how to attach it to a wall if thats your plan. I'm not sure if some sharks come with the green patina shown in a few images, but mine did not.

            As a reviewer mentioned before the packaging has much to be desired. In the attached image you can see the tail pierced the side of the box. The UPS person said it was catching on other boxes in his truck. The tail did have some scratches on it.
