My Work

About Me

Sculptor Long Ly is originally from Saigon, Vietnam. “I lived happily with my family in Saigon until 1978 when we escaped the communist regime at aged only 8 years old. Along with my family we left for an unknown future on a rickety fishing boat.”

He then settled in The UK and completed his schooling. Long went on to a variety of jobs but always had art as his passion. Today he has become  a unique artist with one of a kind designs. His pieces are made from recycled metal, ranging from pots and pans to plumbing pipes and carpet dividers – his imagination shows no bounds. Daily items that you would not consider art at all have been turned in to stunning creations with Long’s ingenuity and skill. 

  • Self Taught Artist
  • No planning involved, only creation
  • Each Piece I create is original.

My Workshop

Long’s sculptural journey has produced many other fine works, his flights of imagination encompass coffee tables, side tables, piano mirrors (made from their inner frames), a beautiful chair and coat-hanger horses and a ghost ship. There was a constructionist phase, producing several unique pieces to marvel at.

Long has been featured in the Lymington Times where he was interviewed about his original sculptures ahead of his gallery opening.
