Reddish, brown, blue, and sometimes purplish hues begin to bloom from the natural copper and coat the surface with an even color which mimics the first stage of patina formation seen in metal aged 1 to 5 years.
Soft blue-green highlights begin to emerge from the soft bronzed background, emulating early term patina formation between 5 to 15 years.
Deeper blue-green highlights blossom from the dark bronze background, as found on copper during late term patina formation, between 15 to 25 years.
Fully developed copper patina as seen on exterior copper aged 30 or more years.
Combines the cascading crystal formation seen in nature with the hand of the artist to produce stunning visual effects.
Zinc is treated so that gray and black textures begin to emerge, adding dimension to create an interesting and dynamic surface
Natural zinc is treated to express an almost iridescent red, brown, and purplish hue in a range of textures.
Architectural grade brass sheets are treated to achieve deep hues often associated with bronze statuary. Available in a variety of textures and shades, the colors that emerge are deep, luminous, luxurious, and complex.
Steel is treated to express the dark blueish reds of raw iron exposed to the elements, and is sealed to prevent further rusting and runoff.
Advantages of Natural Metals
Natural metal finishes are self healing. Scratches and grazes incurred throughout their lifetime will fill in and heal to match the surrounding patina.
We are conscious of our footprint and use recycled metals when possible to help do our part.
Built to Last
These materials are time honored and tested to ensure that they will last for generations.
The natural variation of our materials is finely adapted by our specialists to make each piece a work of art.
