Metal Art

Our metal art is created from new and/or reclaimed steel. Each piece is painted with acrylic lacquer based paints and then treated with special patina solutions to achieve an aged, rustic look and feel.  The ‘Abstract” series focus on a play of organic and chemical  reactions between the paints, patinas, resists and its steel background. Some pieces are given further depth and interest with layered panels and textured steel accents. The results from this process are always somewhat of a surprise since there is only so much control in the way the medium is applied while the rest is left up to nature.  The “Silhouette” series are created from handcut stencils that area applied to the steel before the paints and patinas have been applied. Although this process is more controlled the results are still often varied and even if replicated, no two pieces will ever be alike.
