Welcome to Shidoni
Tommy C. Hicks Jr. opened Shidoni as a bronze foundry in 1971. Over the years Shidoni evolved, and at its peak included the foundry, two galleries, and two sculpture gardens spanning 8 acres. After 52 magical years in Tesuque, the Hicks family decided to close the Tesuque location in March 2023. Despite closing the brick and mortar location, we are excited to continue Shidoni online exclusively.

Here is a little more story on the decision to close...
In February 2022, the property was purchased by a Tesuque neighbor. That fall we learned that the new owner wanted to take possession at the end of March 2023. Instead of trying to scramble and move, Scott Hicks decided to close the doors after much deliberation. Thank you to all of our dear friends and supporters. After so many years, its certainly sad to be closing. But the Hicks family is proud of a fantastic run.
