Oxidation involves creating a chemical reaction with metal particles to produce a unique, natural and rustic look. The impact that this creates, even in small installations, is impressive.

This innovative technique can be applied to walls, ceilings, furniture and artwork or to compliment any surfaces that we can create and is designed to be striking and impactful. The different application processes deliver varying finishes and every one is a wonderful example of how natural corrosive techniques can deliver an impressive outcome.

The metal particles used are usually steel or copper and are added to a material and activated to create a one off rust-like finish that delivers a truly contemporary and awe inspiring surface.

It’s a striking decorative effect that adds that all important and illusive patina to any surface that it’s used on. An oxidised texture transforms objects and walls into unique works of art.


The effect that oxidation delivers is totally unique and nothing like anything else out there. You will never walk in to someone else’s house or office and say ‘we’ve got one exactly like that’, it simply won’t happen.

The real benefit is in its complete bespoke nature, it can’t exist in the same form for someone else. It has a wonderful urban edginess to it which is hugely favoured by interior designers and architects alike. But this surface style isn’t just stunning to look at, it’s also hugely hard wearing and durable and because of the very nature of the product it will age perfectly without fading and losing its unique charm.

Oxidation is a perfect example of a modern, style led, practical solution if you’re looking for something unique, bespoke and different.
