“My work is all about capturing the movement, strength and spirit of the horse. Horses are amazingly powerful creatures and to be able to capture their beauty and strength In the form of steel is the greatest achievement to me. It honors the spirit and beauty of the horse.” – Dwayne Cranford

Although very deliberately composed of ridged weighty materials, Cranford’s sculptures have a sense of fluidity, movement and grace. His technique allows him to articulate and build monumental figurative steel or aluminum sculptures that have realistic expression. This is a steel monument artist from Golden, CO who will blow you away with his creativity and dexterity.

Cranford has used the horse to skillfully capture the power and essence of the horse in a sculptural form. Freezing it in time, mane flying, muscles bulging, ribs tensed and protruding, flanks hard as steel. In fact, they are steel, forged, hammered and shaped by the hand of Dwayne Cranford. His inspiration is derived from his treasured childhood growing up with horses in Colorado.

Cranford is a steel monument artist and has been sculpting since the age of 8, but now works on a monumental scale. A life-sized horse sculpture can take upwards of 6 months to create. An 11-foot horse weighs in around 800 pounds and the mane and tail consist of over 200-feet of galvanized cable.

Dwayne Cranford is an expert welder and provides welding all of the Denver Metro  including areas of Aurora, Lakewood, Thornton, Arvada, Westminster, Centennial, Highlands Ranch, Boulder, Greeley, Longmont, Loveland, Broomfield, Castle Rock, Commerce City, Parker, Littleton, Fort Collins, Loveland, Northglenn, Brighton and Golden.

Cranford’s work is represented in several public collections across the United States. A recipient of numerous awards and has exhibited at some of the most prestigious art shows in the country such as Loveland Invitational Sculpture Show CO, Aspen Fine Art Festival CO, Beaver Creek CO, Carefree AZ, Bayou TX, and Frisco CO.

Horse Sculptures

“Rusty & Chisel” on the trailer.

Rusty is rearing up, and Chisel is charging towards  him. They are one-of-a-kind pieces made of 1/8″ sheet steel.  All cold forged and hammered out piece by piece, then welded together to shape the sculpture. Rusty has a beautiful rust patina and Chisel has a thick clear powder coat on her and will stay shiny.
