Free Form

Metal with a twist


Free your mind and the rest will follow. That seems to be the mantra of designers who are creating looping, free-form designs in metal. It’s the irregular contours and sharp contrasts that keep these metal-intensive designs interesting.

For customers who think outside the box, it could be the perfect gift. Or maybe your customer is just looking for something a little different. Whatever the case, these funky creations will be hard to keep in your showcase.
