Leaf Frame


Individually handcrafted, these leaves are formed by molding an asymmetrical frame using 3/4" wide steel. Each leaf is individually crafted to resemble a natural shape and allowed to age organically with a rustic patina.
This design can be left outdoors year-round without any maintenance. The rust coloring may vary, but over time the finish will gradually darken to a deep, uniform tobacco color.
Each leaf frame measures about 15" wide x 15" tall x 2" deep and includes a saw tooth bracket on the back for hanging.

TIP: Rust is a dynamic finish. If the temperature or humidity fluctuates, it tends to flake a bit. This does not mean it is falling apart, but it can get messy if you are displaying it indoors. To reduce rust shedding, apply light coats of clear spray lacquer, such as Rustoleum, to create a seal without adding high gloss.

Since each leaf frame is formed by hand, there may be slight differences in size and design.
