Noted Brooklyn Artisan Sources Bronze Bars for Decor from Rotax Metals
Rotax Metals, one of the country’s leading suppliers of bronze bars and extrusions, is proud to announce that the works of its customer, Vallessa Monk, have been recently featured in the Wall Street Journal. The 48-year old Brooklyn-based metal sculptor was discovered for her unique furniture designs. With tools for bending, hammering, and texturing, Ms. Monk creates bespoke and elegant window grilles, tables, planters, stairs, banister and other furnishings out of steel and bronze sourced from our very own inventory. “For AKA’s Central Park and Sutton Place properties, Ms. Monk used her signature technique of giving steel surfaces a dramatic patina by applying chemicals either cold by hand-held cloth, or hot via a torch to make ‘the color blossom’”, the Wall Street Journal article noted. AKA is a collection of luxury extended-stay residences and condominiums with properties in different states.
