Unique and Imaginative Creations in Metal
Ted Slaght was born in New England and has lived in
Vermont since 1946. He has always had a knack for
making things from odd bits and pieces. After retiring,
he decided it was time to play â€“ at least thatâ€™s what he
calls it â€“ and so he put the skills that he developed
during his working years into his new, creative
Starting with found bits of scrap iron - a rake, a steering
wheel, an old shovel, almost anything â€“ Ted sets his
imagination free. It usually takes one major find to
inspire a new work. Each piece is unique and each is
signed by the artist.
Tedâ€™s work is inspired by the natural world and a sense
of humor always prevails. So donâ€™t be surprised if you
find yourself smiling back at these whimsical creations.
