Welcome to our site! Esther Benedict is an internationally known sculptor, specializing in life-sized sculptures of all kinds, including 3-dimensional steel horses, wildlife, pets, birds and natural-looking plant life, gates and gate art, awards, table-top bronzes, and 2-dimensional wall art. Esther began her work with metal after becoming a farrier in Upstate New York many years ago. She learned to create horseshoes from heated metal, and progressed from there to the 3-dimensional free-standing pieces she makes today. Esther relocated to Texas in 1996, and resides near Pipe Creek, Texas, today, where her studio is located. As long as you're here, please browse through our site to see what we do.
