john whitmarsh's weathered steel series is the 5th material study in his celebrated - reconstruction studies.

with this series, john wanted to make this popular yet elusive finish available for more projects in need of the urban and sophisticated warmth of hand rubbed steel. 

formed from mill-grade steel, john artfully finishes every piece of his sheered 12"x12" steel tile in order to coax the right intensity of patina. distressed, then polished by hand, john captures the surface at just the right moment revealing beautiful tones of rust as it merges amongst the polished and unpolished steel.
