Hometown: Hartland, MI

R. Dean and Gloria Barkley are the artistic duo who cut, fold, shape and weld pieces of metal together to create handmade metal yard and garden art. The three-dimensional designs are sculptural works of art that are realistically finished to closely depict various items found in nature such as butterflies. After they have masterfully cut, hammered and soldered various metals, what is left is a masterpiece that is meant to be enjoyed by those who are fortunate enough to acquire such a unique metal sculpture. Hailing from Hartland, MI, R. Dean and Gloria Barkley design and fabricate with the finest attention to detail and pride themselves in carrying a unique selection of metal art.
