Skol Studio & Design is a custom metal shop and Art Gallery in Ouray, Colorado

This site undergoes intermittent updates. Please check back occasionally to view new works of original art from Colorado artists and new metal-art creations by Jeff Skoloda.

Custom Metalwork

Skol Studio & Design Inc. specializes in designing and building unique handcrafted pieces of architectural metalwork and furniture. This can include structural elements of a home such as stairs, gates, railings and decks.

We enjoy working with the client to develop a design that works with the client¹s existing decor or taste. Steel is the main component in our designs. Steel can create elegant yet durable works.  The strength of the material allows for flowing and dramatic designs.  We build energy and motion into a static material, borrowing from the grace and energy found in nature and combining that with formal design.

Iron works naturally with other materials, so we collaborate with various artists to introduce wood and stone into our furniture designs.

Our aim is to exceed our clients expectations, and we take pleasure and pride in their appreciation of projects and art done well.


Skol Gallery is located in Ouray, Colorado and is owned and operated by Jeff and Nicole Skoloda.

We invite you to experience our newly opened sculpture garden at our gallery location.  It includes work by several of the artists we represent.

At the top of this page are links to more examples of custom functional art, as well as projects completed by Jeff at Skol Studio and Design.

This bridge was built in 2015 by Skol Studio in conjunction with the Ouray Trail Group.
