“Late yestreen I saw the new moone lie, Wi the auld moone in hir arme…” he bellows low with a feigned Scottish accent, tool in hand and a twinkle in his eye. Spoken verse, the echoes of emotive lyrics and the rasping of sculptures in progress are customary sounds emitted from the studio. Larger than life, Anton Smit is the embodiment of poetry, an apt term for this sculptor, derived from the term for “making.” Anton forms his own language through sculpture, the manifestation of his passion for expression and his profound Faith.

  • I visited the sculpture park with family over the holidays. Although I am not completely facinated by sculptures in general, I really enjoyed the park and will visit again when I am in the area. The coffee shop has very nice food and friendly staff (you have to try the fries).
  • I've had my birthday here twice and the experience is never the same. Good food. Good people. Good environment.. #PieceofHeaven
