About Us

 

Founded in 2006, Overwrought Garden Art is a business dedicated to creating beautiful hand-made decorative metal work of all kinds. Owner and artisan David Dawson has a background in welding and a passion for design. He decided to bring those two elements together to create Overwrought Garden Art.  Originally with a focus on making gates, our range has since expanded to now include wall art,  garden art,  sculptures, signs, furniture, fire pits, bird baths, privacy screens and security doors. Overwrought Garden Art's extensive collection can be viewed at our Sculpture Garden and Gallery, online via our website and at selected stockists. Commission pieces are also available upon request. We make it a priority to listen to our customer’s ideas and create a design to suit your decorating style.

Overwrought's Sculpture Garden and Gallery is located in Blampied only eight minutes from the popular tourist town of Daylesford, which is one and a half hours from Melbourne.  In early 2015 we relocated our production and retail outlet from our former site in Daylesford to a five acre property in the lush potato growing region of Blampied, and have spent the last twelve months creating a memorable experience for our customers.

A massive farm shed that once housed semi trailers for cattle transport has been reftitted to produce of our ever growing range of handmade products. From an old hay shed with a dirt floor we have created a high roofed, light and welcoming gallery space that whilst incorporating many rustic elements from its former life is still stylish and contemporary.  Here we sell a combination of Davids designs as well as a range of work from many other local artists, artisans and makers. This range includes paintings, ceramics, jewellery, photography, woodwork, handbags, fibre arts, artisans teas and soaps. With so many talented artists in this region we have chosen art that inspires us and compliments the naturalistic feel of our gallery environment. From our gallery our customers step into a beautifully landscaped sculpture garden where larger works are uniquely displayed. We have created an extensive native garden that incorporates dry creek beds, a billabong and fish ponds, cactus gardens and a performance space. It is a tranqiuil haven to explore and relax in. A place of peace to contemplate the art in a natural environment.  We would love to see you and we look forward to having you visit us.
