Shelly Durica-Laiche

I think all objects should be well designed, beautiful and built to last. I keep this in mind no matter what steel object I’m welding in the studio, functional or decorative.
My design style incorporates clean lines, with bold and graphic shapes. It’s a contemporary look. I focus on the elegance of form, saying the most with the least material.
I use as much salvaged material as possible from scrap yards around the state. When inspired by these unique shapes the results are one of a kind objects.
The garden is an extension of the home, a place to connect with nature. My larger sculptural work integrates into one’s cultivated outdoor space. I also build architectural details, garden accents, art to hang from branches or rise from planted beds.
When I create a trellis I want it to please the eye as well as be useful. They can be used as a visual screen by growing vines or vegetables, then become a stand-alone sculpture in the winter.
