Please note: due to the graphic compression of the
photo, the tin work appears in the picture to be a bit fuzzy,
in real life it is smooth as a baby's behind. We've compressed all
the images on our site for faster load times, which sometimes make
the images a bit fuzzy, but it's that or wait for ever for these
big images to load
