Creating this Website

Creating this website felt like creating a work of art – and that is exactly what we feel this website has become as we share the stories of Yvette Moore, her family and all the artisans we showcase in our incredible historical building. Take your time as you browse through all the pages and especially the videos of 11 of our artisans as they welcome us all into their studios and display the passion of what makes them create their works, tell their stories. With the support of Tourism Saskatchewan, we feel that we have accomplished what we were striving for – to educate our viewers about the creative space that our artisans live and breath in as they passionately hand make their works of art.

Steven Vanhove

Steven’s journey with repurposing metal scrap into art began in 2012. Having no formal training, he started with an offshore plasma cutter and some salvaged pieces from the family farm scrap pile: a shovel, barrel rings, and a disc blade.

He used these to test his abilities and create gifts for his family members. Soon he started to receive requests to create pieces from friends as images were being shared on Facebook profiles. He began testing his cutting abilities out on any metal object he could find. As the amount of pieces created started to grow, he was convinced into attending a few trade shows.

His main choice for material has always been found and salvaged metal items. Fuel tanks, cream cans, hand saws, snow shoes, and anything else he could cut or fit with a metal panel. Over the past few years, he has started to incorporate barnboard and live edged birch which he sourced from another artisan who runs his own sawmill near Nipawin. Most recently he has tried to blend his metal with stained glass.

Steven believes in recycling as many pieces as possible.

Sometimes a piece takes shape quickly while others take time before they show him what’s hiding within it’s form.

As unique, one-of-a kind art pieces, guaranteed availability may not be immediate.  Yvette Moore Gallery and our artists work closely together to custom match similar items.
