About Brian


Welcome to Brian Crandall Art.  I have taken my farrier career to the next step by creating unique, one-of-a-kind artwork from my used horseshoes and files.  I enjoy creating unique horseshoe art pieces that are more than just “old shoes.”  The majority of my horseshoe artwork involves reshaping the shoes to create flowing metal sculptures.  Many pieces, including wine holders, vases, and candelabras, require unique balancing of the art while creating practical usage of the old horseshoes.  I also utilize worn out files and nails to add subtleties to my horseshoe artwork.

I collect these old horseshoes from my clients as they have traversed the show trail throughout the country, as well as natural trails in Western Colorado and Eastern Utah.  Many of these trails in our region were traveled by the likes of Teddy Roosevelt, Kit Carson, Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch, Doc Holiday, and Chief Ouray.

Please enjoy! If I can create a unique one of a kind horseshoe artwork for you, please let me know.  I always enjoy working with clients to ensure their satisfaction.
