A cactus in Kansas? Artist and founder of Desert Steel, Eric Carroll of Wichita wanted to import the majesty of Southwest saguaros to the Great Plains. He turned to rust-resistant steel to out craft Mother Nature and make his garden dreams grow. Desert Steel sculptural creations add durable style and function to any yard. This handcrafted collection of flora and fauna not only serves as decor but also as bird feeders and citronella torches. More than 18 years after creating his first metal saguaro, Eric continues to cut new pieces that enliven environments, no matter the season.
