iron oxide

Iron oxide also know as rust is the chemical reaction between steel and the elements of water and oxygen. Simply put it's a form of decay...and I think the stains are wonderful.

"It is a beauty of things modest and humble." *

"It is the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete." *

"It is the beauty of things unconventional." *

"The suggestion of natural process...expressions of time frozen." *

*Quoted from Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets and Philosophers by Leonard Koren.
