To achieve the desired level of detail we use a high-tech fibre laser cutter capable of producing the highest quality of cut possible, this machine can effortlessly follow the complex contours of our designs and cut the smallest holes letting us get the final metal decoration as lifelike as possible.
Rusted Metal Garden Art
MetalMotif is a small company of two friends who personally design and sell our own rusted metal garden art and decorations of animals and landscapes. We use CNC machinery, industry leading software and the finest steel to ensure our products are of a quality we can be proud to put our name to.
Our goal is to make our products as realistic looking as possible while also rugged enough to stay at that level of detail for decades to come.
In order to stop our rusted metal products from eventually corroding away all their detail we use the same material as Antony Gormley's Angel of the North statue is constructed from - Corten weathering steel. This specialty steel, once the desired surface level of rust is formed, will stop any further corrosion from taking place by using its oxidised layer as a protective barrier.
