Ron and Victoria Smith, owners
The Smiths have been involved with horses and ranching most of their lives. Their love for
country life is reflected in all of the unique western "sculptures" they create.
Ron grew up on a cattle ranch in South Dakota and, in his youth, farmed with horsedrawn equipment,
was involved in raising cattle on open range, and participated in rodeo events. As an adult, he spent
21 years in the U.S. Navy, and as a boilermaker/steam engineer/welder.
A UNIQUE BLEND OF TALENT:
RON AS THE WELDER AND MARKETING EXPERT,
AND VICTORIA AS THE DESIGNER
OF EACH ART "SCULPTURE".
Victoria is a self-taught Western Artist. Over the years she has won awards for her Bronze
sculptures, color pencil drawings, and Acrylic paintings, including Best of Show at Western Art Shows.
Victoria also was a professional show horse trainer for over 30 years, deciding to retire in 2009.
Meet us at Recycled Ranch Relics
The Smiths are now living in Toledo, WA., where they own a home on acreage. They
maintain a full welding shop/art studio on the premises, plus still own horses.
Recycled Ranch Relics takes discarded metal "found objects" and recycles them
into art "sculptures". The resulting pieces are sold at art shows, community markets, and through various wholesale businesses, as well as private sales.
