Our creations are made of a durable 14 gauge carbon steel. Covered with a thin layer of black oxide, this is responsible for the item's gray color. Our items are laser cut, and polished by hand in our Northwest Georgia studio.
Steel is an infinitely recyclable material, meaning it can be recycled over and over again. This greatly minimizes its negative environmental impact, saving energy, reducing landfill waste, and decreasing the mining of iron ore. Please keep this in mind as you consider the nature of this material, and the variability it shows.
Due to the variations inherent in steel materials, the surface of each piece will likely vary somewhat from the photos. The color, shades, spots, and markings on the metal vary from piece to piece, making each one uniquely different.
