Shane Larsen, founder of Ore Inc., started 17 years ago specializing in metal sculpture and functional art. Using his passion for metal work he turned his focus to the garden design industry. Since 2003 his company has designed and manufactured contemporary lines of signature containers, fire pits, benches and architectural elements right here in Utah. These things are so good for the planet you can get LEED points just by owning them. Some of my favorites below: Stilt Container, Block Container, Slab Container, Cable Ball, Cantilever Bench, Plank Bench, Cylindrical Fire Pit and Square Fire Pit.
