Salvaging materials [2] and signs from ten-foot-high, thirty thousand pound scrap piles, Rhode Island based artist, Boris Bally [3] has created a magnificent collection of reclaimed metal products [4]! From tables and chairs, to kitchenware, photo frames and house numbers, Bally’s experimentation with recycled signage really illustrates the potential elegance of this otherwise discarded aluminum.

On his work with reclaimed aluminum [5] Bally says: “I have since challenged myself to discover its properties in order to create bold objects of beauty which transcend its common roots. Signage has become my passionate medium of choice not only because of the recycling message, but also its appeal to me as an extreme variation on the age-old tradition of enamelling.”

You can currently buy Bally’s products from a number of online retailers, including Eco-Artware [6], Green with Envy Gifts [7], Elsewares [8] and Uncommon Goods [9].
