Artists: Cary and Jesse Stefani
With each object Cary Stefani designs, he creates more than a trendy accessory or architectural element – he fashions a work of art. He and his son Jesse are award-winning creators of designs in metal, best known for the design and fabrication of finely-crafted jewelry as well as a unique approach in creating larger metalworks and architectural elements. Cary studied at Cranbrook Academy and his son, Jesse, has a degree in Design from College for Creative Studies in Michigan.
“In 2005 we decided to expand our services to include larger format objects – sculpture, furniture, lighting and other architectural elements,” said Cary Stefani. “We still give the same attention to detail and design as we do when we create jewelry, but it’s on a much larger scale!” Stefani & Co. designed and created the “Tree Trellises” which have bougainvillea climbing to fill the canopy with shade and beauty. They also created two bronze wall sculptures for the display in t he Peace River Botanical & Sculpture Gardens prior to being commissioned for the Tree Trellises.
