Rhodo Creations
Naturally Elegant Wedding Rentals, Railings & Custom Furniture

 

Rhodo Creations is a naturally elegant wedding rental and custom furniture company.  My name is Bill Metes, the artist, craftsman, & woodsman.  I use rescued rhododendron, mountain laurel, and salvaged slabs of tree trunks to build my pieces.  My artistic ability to utilize the natural shape of the tree branches to create a natural flow within the piece  separates my work from others.  The art pieces I create  have been inspired by the inherent beauty and natural serenity of the Smoky Mountains. With creative vision and diligence I have become the pioneer of natural  wedding rentals and my committment to exceeding expectations  has placed me on Biltmore Estate’s and the Grove Park’s preferred vendors list.  I have expanded my delivery area nation wide and have sent a wedding arbor to Oregon and was involved in a Hilton Head wedding at Palmette Bluffs this past July.   As an alumnus of Penland School of Craft's creative capital team and semifinalist in NC's Art Council Grant my dedication to the arts is unwavering, and look forward to hearing about your creative visions.
