Our History

Established in 2013, in Fredericksburg, Texas, Celaya Metal Creations is owned and operated by Ernest and Kathleen Celaya.  Ernest and Kathleen met in high school and have been married over 40 years.  They have three grown children and eight grandchildren.  Both are now retired and have settled in the scenic Texas Hill Country.  


After a career in police work, Ernest decided to take up welding as a hobby and completed a course to learn the basics of working with metal.  He developed “metal art fever” and has now embarked on his second career.  He has continued to further develop his skills through much practice and experimentation, and has become an artist in his own right.


We offer unique items not commonly available from other metal artists.  In addition, we always welcome your ideas and have developed some of our most popular items from our customers’ concepts.
