Reuse & Repurpose: Nicely Worded

After perusing my Twitter feed the other day I ran into this hanging art made out of humble materials that some people might not have bothered to give a second glance.

Thankfully, not the artists at Coulson Macleod, a U.K.-based design duo known for making stunning statements with typography. From The Rust collection, these pieces are fashioned out of steel sheets left out in the elements to naturally develop their warm, rusty hue. Once they achieves the perfect patina, the metal is then over-printed with relief-printed typography and then mounted into handmade, reclaimed wood frames salvaged from timbers used on Victorian roofs.

Even though they look like they could have been made from materials found in a junk shop, these modern masterpieces belong in a place of honor.
