Forged iron, rust, carvon, sanguine, steel nails

Nothing tells more stories than aging. Oxidation leads iron to rust creating wonderful tones. These pieces are unique, their characteristics bring us memories from "other times" and their language, movement and aesthetic fascinate us. They are like architectural jewels. We use to see them in balcony railings, on the base of the handrails, in stairwells and steps. These forged irons are no longer made the way they used to be done, so this was our tribute to celebrate these fascinating antiques and keep them alive.
