Southern Sun is a metal art company started by the Mark Caldwell in May of 2013. After retiring from 26+ years in the US Navy as a diesel mechanic, I decided to take it easy with high heat torches and high pressure pneumatic tools. I do the forming and soldering, along with the designing of the products. I specialize in whimsical metal art for the garden and the indoors. It’s all hand made by myself, with creations designed by me and inspired by nature. I only use the highest quality, rust resistant metals: copper and brass. I polish it to a high shine, then paint it with custom automotive paints. I finish it with a high gloss polyurethane, making it resistant to all types of weather and in need of very little maintenance. Although I have my own designs and stock of critters, flowers and plants, I welcome any special orders or ideas to add to my stock. If you can think of it, I will do my best to create it! I don’t have a retail store front yet, but we will be doing arts and craft shows, and I am always available by phone or email for any orders you desire at any time of the year. I will ship all over the world as well. My Inventory is ever changing and always expanding. What you see on the website are only examples of my work. I can create the pieces in many colors, patinas and sizes. When a new piece is created I will add their categories to the site.
