Installation

***DO NOT HIT THE METAL  POLES WITH A HAMMER! IT WILL SEVERELY DAMAGE THE POLES!***


Large In Ground Copper Sculpture installation and care guide:

         -Place sculpture where it will not hit any other objects when it spins.

-Do not use any type of cleaner, degreaser or any type of chemicals on it. To clean it, gently brush any debris off of it and you can gently spray it with clean water. 

        -Sculptures need to be in a 18”-24” deep hole. I recommend digging the hole with a post hole digger. Back fill and pack the dirt. I usually back fill about 6 inches at a time and pack it with the handle end of a shovel.

-If you wish you can add concrete but it is not necessary. 

Installation directions:

-Dig 18”-24” foot hole with a post hole digger

-Place steel rod in

-Pack in about 6-8 inches of dirt and pack it in

-Make sure steel is straight

-Fill the rest with dirt, pack it in and make sure the steel is still straight



Mini in ground Sculpture directions and care guide:

        -Place the sculpture in a spot where it cannot swing and hit another object. 

        -Push the steel rod into the ground (without the top on) so it stands up on its own.

        -The steel rod should be sturdy in the ground.

        -Place the sculpture on the steel rod and you should feel the top bearing “click/seated” into place.

        -If it doesn’t spin right check to see that the bearing has seated on the top.


Lotus and Poppy

       -Make sure that they are installed about 8”-10” deep

        -Install steel rod separate from the copper top

        -Dig a hole or press stake firmly in the ground

        -Gently install the copper sculpture top and gently seat the top bearing.


Hanging Copper Sculpture directions and care guide:

        -Hang the sculpture with wire (not string) in a spot where it cannot swing and hit another object.

-Do not use any type of cleaner, degreaser or any type of chemicals on it. To clean it, gently brush any debris off of it and you can gently spray it with clean water. 


Lubrication for all sculptures

        For all sculpture lubrication should be done as needed or every couple years. Though I have sculptures in my yard I haven’t touched in many years. Use a silicone spray lubricant such as triflow.  For all hanging and mini in ground, spray enough lubricant to reach the bearing. On the bottom bearing on the large in ground ones I put a little lithium grease in it but you can use triflow also.  If you use lithium grease just put a bit on your pinkie finger and coat the bearing on the inside.
