Dear Louise,

I have subscribed to Country Living for many many years, and treasure every copy.

While in Devon I visited a garden at Mothecombe House in the south Hams. It is a beautiful house with gardens that flow down a valley to a sandy cove.

One of delights in the garden, tucked away in different places, I discovered metal sculptures made from old knives forks and spoons etc. Dragon flies by the lake in different sizes, wrens secreted in the bushes, kingfishers and other delights. 

I have discovered that the artist creating these fabulous items works front a small workshop in Ermington Devon, just down the road from the garden in question.

I visited him today, and found him to be the most delightful young man. Brilliant and buzzing with ideas and I believe that his ethos of re using household items would appeal to your readers. 

His name is Ed Hill Metal Art. 28/09/2023

 

Thank you so much for ensuring the dragonfly arrived in time for Cate’s birthday. She was absolutely thrilled with it and, as you can see from the photo, it is already hovering nicely over our little pond. It looks fantastic. We do occasionally visit Devon for short break holidays and we will certainly be popping in to see you while we are down there to thank you in person.

Hi Ed, I was very pleased to be able to speak to you today and see the range of your work – very impressive!  The show today I thought was very good and also, I hope, worked for you. No doubt I’ll see you at other events. In meantime keep up the good work 😊 Best wishes,

Jim Dewar. 28/11/2022

 

Dear Ed, I just wanted to say how delighted I am with my wren which I was given by my family for my birthday. I had seen some of your work at the Delamore Art Exhibition in May and loved it. My sister must have taken note! I’ve put a photo of my wren as my profile picture on Facebook and have had many positive comments. I’ve told friends where it came from. I hope they’ll want one too! Best wishes. Hilary Wheatley 15/11/2022

Dear Ed, I’m emailing you as I am the very lucky person who received Hen 1 for my Christmas present from my husband. I was totally bowled over when he gave it to me, as I had no idea he had commissioned this from you. I’d loved the cockerel when I saw it in Devon, but Hen 1 is even better. As a hen owner, I can testify to how brilliantly you have captured a hen’s pose and expression – and all in cutlery. I am amazed at the result, so wanted to email you with my thanks and congratulations. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and may I wish you a very Happy New Year. Best wishes, Jo Smyth 27/12/2021

 

Hi Ed, “Wesley” was looking magnificent today in the rain! He had a real sparkle! Weve been to Delamore in some bad weather, but never anything quite as bad as today. Geoff and Liz 15/05/2021

Dear Ed, Thank you so much for the fabulous dragonfly. I think it will look super on the edge of out pond. I will send you a picture of it when “our” pond is completed (which always takes time”, Rome wasn’t built in a day” is our moto I think. Love from Kathy Wood 24/7/21

 

Hi Ed, our parcel arrived safely today, thank you! We’re delighted with it and wanted to say many thanks for the covering letter which was very informative and interesting. The rock will certainly keep the damselfly secure, I just need to work out how to put it in place without falling in the pond myself! Many thanks again for you excellent workmanship and service, keeping us informed on progress etc. We hope we can see you showroom when we are next in the area one day. Kind regards, Tony and Angela 22/10/2020

 

Hi Ed, I just wanted to let you know how ‘over the moon’ Emma is with her Birthday present. It has pride of place. She was also touched by the lovely letter you wrote us. Thank you so much for all your help, and we will definitely arrange to visit when in the area. James and Emma Love 31/08/2020

 

Ed Hill Thank you so much for singing at our Wedding. Everyones still talking about it. It was a perfect day. And Thank you so much for learning, singing our special song. ‘Shape of my heart’ by Sting. You sant it just perfectly. In fact, I like your version much better. I just cannot possibly thank you enough… Jane Wadsworth 23/08/2020

 

Hello Ed, My little bird arrived today and was awaiting me when I got back from duty. I is absolutely lovely the workmanship is brilliant… One delighted customer, Many thanks, Ann 23/06/2020

 

Hi Ed, I just wanted to let you know that the package arrived today in one piece. It’s amazing and better than I remember. I know Emma will love it. Thank you for the letter too. We’ll definitely arrange to come and meet you when we’re down in your neck of the woods. I will definitely take pride of place at home. Thank you so much once again for all your help. Kind regards, James 24/06/2020

 

Well done Ed. Very Nice. The Gallery has scrubbed up well! Swallow is the wall a nice touch. We are especially taken with the dove and the group of 3 birds. All the best. Geoff and Liz 30/05/2020

 

Hi Ed, Congratulations on you move! We wish you every success with your new workshop. We look forward to seeing your work exhibited. Love and peace, Chris and Lynn Hillaby 04/06/2020

 

Hi Ed, loved the virtual tour. Seeing you with your work is fab, it shows the size better and how much work is in the pieces. I am astonished how you achieve the accuracy of the animals and birds. Your eye for detail and ability to create is outstanding. It would be fabulous to see your drawings and how you get your ideas on what you are making and then see the finished piece. I can see how much work and money you have invested, all the exhibitions and events are getting you known. How about contacting BBC Spotlight and West Country news for TV? Recycle reuse and local is what it is all about and ticks so many boxes. Good luck Ed, you are amazing. Can’t wait to get over to see you there in your new pad. Lorraine and Colin 30/05/2020

 

Absolutely brilliant Ed. Really enjoyed the virtual tour, very professional and your art pieces are superb and we are really looking forward to a personal visit and viewing when the current situation is over. Take care and much love to all the family. Mike and Diane 30/05/2020

 

Hi Ed, Dove 2 is stunning. As is Dove 1. And so so needed right now. Well done Ed. You are a gifted deeply thoughtful and spiritual being I think, and this energy comes through you hands and is expressed in your work. Love and prayers from Teresa

 

Hi Ed, I’ve admired your work for so long. I saw the reedmace as soon as I sat down for coffee in the café this morning and totally fell in love with it… Can’t wait to pick it up and get in installed. Maggie King 18/06/2021

 

Thank you Ed, You are producing some wonderful work – your Lyrebird and dove are centre stage on our hearth! Congratulations on the Eco Prize – the Sphere looks superb. I hope your 1:1 workshops go well and that you are able to produce more artworks during the lockdown ready for 2021! Best wishes, Ruth 10/11/2020

 

Hi Ed, The Silver Squirrel arrived safely this morning. Needless to say, Lynn is thrilled with it. Thank you also for the card and letter. Kind regards, Mike. 30/01/2021

 

Dear Ed, Thank you, the Mandarin duck has arrived. It is magnificent! I am sure my mother will love it. Best wishes, Hazel Butland 26/02/2021

 

Good morning Ed, It was great to meet you yesterday to see and hear more about your artwork and of course to collect out beautiful dragonfly. I will send you a photo of it in situ once we have added a few plants to the pond. We hope to see more of your work at local exhibitions in the future. Hope all goes well this year and your business continues to grow. Kind regards, Sue Steptoe 11/03/21
