These rusted metal yard torches are sold in a set of three and are connected by a steel base plate. The steel base sits under the rocks in your yard and must be on a flat surface.
What’s included with these metal yard art pieces?
We include three gel candles with your purchase, you may continue to use gel candles or purchase tiki torches for inside of your lanterns.
We include large rocks with your torches, but you’ll want to wait until after you install them to place the rocks–they’re very heavy to move after the rocks are placed. If you’d rather use your own rocks or fill them with something else, please let us know.
How do you rust the metal?
This item is pre-rusted. We start the rusting process for you by finishing the metal and then treating it with a vinegar/peroxide/salt mixture.
This is superficial and the metal should be handled as little as possible until the organic rusting kicks in. Organic rusting will happen as the item ages and is left to the weather elements. The look of these metal yard art pieces will change over time due to the natural process of the steel rusting.
What are the dimensions of these metal torches?
Approximate heights on the torches are 64 inches, 54 inches, and 44 inches tall. The base will fit into a 26 inch triangle, but we can also make these with custom dimensions to suit the area you want to place yours.
Each one is handmade here in Arizona so there will be some slight differences between every order. You will be getting a truly one of a kind piece to accent your home. These look great on a patio, deck, by the pool–anywhere you’d like a beautiful statement piece.
Will the metal yard torches tip over?
These torches are heavy, each one is made from 1/4 inch thick, 6 inch square steel tubing so they can stand up to the elements, high wind, and more. They are designed for life outdoors and have been tested in Vail, Arizona–our winds are often referred to as the “vail gales.”
We cut and weld the torches in our shop in Vail, Arizona, and love serving our local community. If you have custom project ideas, we’d love to help you with them!
