Rusty Deer isn't here to simply sell products to make a quick buck!

We will work with you to get a gift you are proud to give, every time they look at that piece they will immediatly think of you.

10, 50... NO 100's of years from now we will know that none of our products will end up in landfill they will be passed down the generations.

In our business, no-one should be guessing. If you have questions, ask away.


Meet The Maker

Tim Groves

Owner/Operator of Rusty Deer & Aquiferra Olive Oil.

I value hard work, creativity and quality time with friends/family.

I grew up in the Wairarapa with a rural background and am now living in sunny Hawkes Bay

I enjoy most sports, but especially hockey, squash and tennis.

One of my first roles was at an engineering company operating a CNC machine.

Rusty Deer was born when I explored the possibilities of what can be made from steel.

From there I have never looked back. Rusty Deer Creations is now edging closer to 20,000 followers on social media.

I am always striving to take on new and more adventurous projects.



Know the business

Steel Art

Rusty Deer Creations makes customised steel art thats perfect for gifts, farm/business signs or just to treat yourself.

Because all of our work is made from steel you can rest assured it is going to last, and like a fine wine, they only get better with age.

We started off small- making quality steel gifts for family and friends.

Once the word got out we started making more items for people from all around the New Zealand.

Our very first creation was a rusty deer, which is where the name originated.

While we are still very small, Tim has some big plans to one day take his designs global.
