About - 81 Metal Art

Veteran owned, made in USA. Top quality metal art!

We started our family-owned workshop with money saved on military deployments and downsizing our home. We began producing metal art and other parts with second hand equipment in June of 2014, and by Christmas of that year we were overwhelmed with orders from family and friends. We realized that metal art could be more than just a side business.
Quickly becoming tired of the same old canned designs that you've seen so many times, we made it our foremost goal to come up with new and exciting products. Every single day we challenge ourselves to come up with innovative ideas and new, unique items the world has never seen.
Using this approach, we've been able to expand our business into a larger workshop near our hometown and we both now work full time as craftsmen. Our retail brick & mortar store is open on Fridays and Saturdays just off of Highway 81 in Freeman, SD. We remain a husband and wife team with the help of our faithful companion, Tater the wiener dog and occasional help from our immediate family members.
With help from Etsy we're able to display and ship our items all over the world. Each order receives our personal care and attention to detail, and we encourage you to browse through our many reviews to come to your own conclusion.
We would love to hear from you, so if you're ever in Southeast South Dakota please stop in and browse around. Otherwise shoot us a message and we'll get right to work for you!
