A view of some of the scrap metal inside Kristen's studio.
From the polished exterior, rich colors and patinas, to the dynamic personality, and subtle details,… to the brilliance, the unmistakable contrasts, and the magical shadows of light I am channel for a universal source. My life's purpose is to create beauty and inspiration.. This is me — this is Kristen Hoard. A creative thinker, a designer, a sculptor, an artist, a magician of metal, light, and fire.
From humble beginnings, to designing an elaborate fire pit for the famous Las Vegas duo of Siegfried and Roy, Kristen Hoard's passion and talent surrounding metal sculpting has reached a pinnacle of metal art design.. And yet she's just getting started.
Kristen's uses her favorite tool… the plasma cutter to create these designs… putting them altogether with the welder and then adding color with patinas and dyes and resn. Sometimes combining clay, enamel, copper, steel, and aluminum… really anything in her shop she lets the muse take her on a journey for each piece.
"as the owner of an art gallery I quickly realized which of the artists I showcased would be able to follow through with a commission request. Kristen not only follows through she DELIVERS! She truly listens to the needs/wants of a client and gives them all they hoped for and more. She keeps the excitement building throughout the construction of the art piece by including the buyer in the process. She is timely, professional and FUN!"

“When we were renovating our backyard and swimming pool I wanted to add a fire sculpture as focal point. so I started searching the internet for artists who were creating such sculptures. I found the website of Kristen Hoard and liked her work including the LED artwork. An email to her followed by several phone conversation resulted in my commissioning her to do a fire sculpture with LED lights. The result was absolutely beautiful. Kristen is easy to work with, is very creative and responds well to ideas and the location where the artwork eventually gets placed. Even though our sculpture is pretty tall, it could be shipped and installed by my handymen without difficulties."

I was fortunate to find Kristen's while searching for metal artists on the internet. After viewing her portfolio, i knew at once i wanted her to create a custom piece for my husband's Christmas gift.
Five years ago, my husband almost died in a quad accident. Although he recovered, I held on to his crutches to commemorate the miracle of a life saved. I had always planned to have the crutches made into a piece of art as a reminder.
Kristen was exceptional to work with. She took the crutches and my scattered ideas and created something special. She communicated with me throughout the entire process and included me in the creative decisions. I love the piece she created for us. Who knew that crutches could be so beautiful?
Kristen Hoard's work is awesome! I was googling around one night trying to find unique and interesting metal art and came upon her website. There were some pieces shown that I absolutely loved. I was looking specifically for pieces for a couple of niches in our new home. I e-mailed Kristen my desires, measurements, and she delivered in a very timely manner. She even e-mailed me pictures of her progress, and also mailed me samples of what the color would look like just to make sure that was what I was looking for so I would be happy. I am VERY happy with the outcome! They are absolutely beautiful, unique, and everyone who comes to our home exclaims about them. I live near the East and she lives in the West; working with her long distance was never an issue. I would attach pictures, but I cannot seem to get them to turn out well enough to do the artwork justice. They are simply gorgeous.
