Metaphor Bronze Includes Detail & Sustainability

Metaphor Bronze Includes Detail & Sustainability

One surface that ages like a fine bottle of red wine is exposed metal.  Metal exposed to the Northwest climate, develops a deeper, darker patina; especially tile made from recycled nickel, bronze, or sterling silver.  A shiny new look can be maintained with an occasional application of clear shoe wax.

One favorite metallic tile line is Metaphor Bronze developed by Jay Gibson, a talented artisan and Pratt Institute graduate. The Timberline Series are realistic impressions of pinecones and oak leaves possessing leathery detail. For those who desire simple accents of metal, effective in tying fixtures and fittings into overall design, might favor moldings to frame out or terminate edges of plain field tile.  Metal tile looks especially beautiful paired with natural stone and rustic ceramic tile. Visit Norberry Tile to experience and feel these beautiful finishes.

  • Actually, a question…can the Mountain Scene 2’12 x 10 Frieze be finished in bronze – rather than Nickel?
