Sculptor to Host Open House Saturday at Vail Lake

Since relocating his studio to Vail Lake Resort near Temecula, Breceda’s sculptures can now be seen along on Highway 79 South east of the city.

Sculptor Ricardo Breceda has not slowed down since moving his iconic studio along Interstate 215 in Perris to Temecula nearly one year ago.

From his beginnings 12 years ago when his daughter wanted a dinosaur “just like the one on ‘Jurassic Park,’’ Breceda has been sculpting works of art out of scrap metal.

Since relocating his studio to Vail Lake Resort near Temecula, Breceda’s sculptures can now be seen along on Highway 79 South east of the city.

“The move has been better for business,” Breceda said, noting that Australia and China are just some of the places he has shipped pieces that have been purchased.

Locally, Breceda’s work also adorns the quiet desert town of Borrego Springs. When asked which of his pieces is his favorite, Breceda said: “The one I am going to make tomorrow,” signifying his passion to keep creating.

For those curious about what Breceda has been up to, he is hosting a free open house from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at his Vail Lake Resort studio, 38000 Highway 79 South in Temecula.

The open house will also serve as a book signing for author Diana Lindsay, who wrote “Ricardo Breceda —The Accidental Artist.” The book is about Breceda’s beginnings as a metal sculptor.

There will be wine tasting, music and exhibits from other fine artists at the event that is open to the public.

Guests can also register to win a piece sculpted by Breceda.

Truly enjoy his sculpture! What a great addition to the area, first time I saw the horses along hwy79S I was inspired! I used to see his yard off the 215 and it always caught my eye, but seeing them in the hills off 79S really showcased how awesome they are!

We love being neighbors with Ricardo Breceda. His sculptures along Highway 79 South help bring focus on the arts near the Dorland Mt Arts Colony too!

Thank you for this cool stuff. I think that most of the good stuff comes from old iron fences. I think that it really helps. http://www.cityfence.ca/products/wrought-iron-fences
