Welcome to Opperman  & Smolten

design, lighting & decor  …

Trevor Opperman‘s beautiful hand-forged artwork is highly sought after – each piece is testament  to his technical perfection and flawless execution.  He learnt his skill at an early age working alongside his father, later honing his expertise in Australia to become a master metal worker.  On his return to SA he settled in Plettenberg Bay where for the last 20 years he has enhanced the homes of discerning clients both locally and abroad. Finding beauty in his surroundings his stylized organic pieces mirror nature. Lyn Opperman hands on co-owner brings    a delightful mix of the whimsical and quirky. Together they  create what she terms ‘functional art.’  A graduate of the Johannesburg College of Art she majored in sculpture which won her several  awards.Together they seamlessly  create a fusion between art and decor transforming  the mundane and elevating  it into something beautiful and unique.

These  work can be found all over the world: London USA Germany Australia Bahamas Italy Exotic islands and many exclusive lodges in Africa
