22 Dazzling Examples of Beautiful Metal Art

22 Dazzling Examples of Beautiful Metal Art

It doesn’t matter how much we love the look, feel and texture that natural fibres give our homes, there’s something about metal that we simply can’t get enough of. Perhaps it’s that sense of permanence. It’s not going to break. And it lasts and lasts. Sure, it needs a polish and a dust once in a while, but don’t all ornaments?

From an artisan’s perspective, the beauty of metal is that it’s malleable. It can be melted, moulded, twisted and turned to create anything. It can be recycled. It can be painted. It can even be printed on!

If you’re looking to add a little something special to your home, metal art – made of copper, aluminium or stainless steel – is where it’s at. Here are 22 dazzling examples of beautiful art that make for great artistic inspiration, wonderful gifts or a visual treat that you and your family can enjoy.

For an easy art project, why not find one of your most gorgeous sunset photos and create a stunning split image canvas on our brushed aluminium? Once you’ve tried metal prints, there’s no going back!

Nature

The wonder of nature is that it’s largely ephemeral. The wonder of metal is that it’s largely long-lasting. Combining the two is a perfect way to copy nature so that we can enjoy it always or capture it at a point in time and leave it there.

Of course, metalworkers and artisans have no intention of replacing the natural world with metal. That’s industrial age thinking better left in the past. The art featured below is a celebration of nature – a way we can honour its beauty (without having to water it!).

Lustrous

One of the most appealing things about metal is its brilliant sheen. The bend of the metal reflects light at different angles. Strategically placed lighting in the home is the friend of metal artwork. Each angle reflects a different intensity of light.

It’s the curve of the metal that appeals to the eye. Add a splash of colour to the metal and you transform what would otherwise be a matt finish to something exceptional.

“Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.” – George Bernard Shaw
