Finish Options

Our finish options are Antique Brass, Dark Antique Brass, Dark Brass, Verdi Gris and Antique Copper.

All fixtures, unless noted, can be made in solid brass or copper. Our products consist of a living finish, which is hand applied to provide a stunning overall color. We do not paint or lacquer our fixtures.    

Living Finish

We use the term “living” finish.  But what does that mean? Any metal other than stainless steel that is not coated or lacquered will oxidize over time, acquiring a unique “patina”. This means the finish will change and transform through exposure to the environment.  

A living finish is a much sought-after look when buying copper and brass, without an added protective coating, these materials are allowed to age gracefully in their natural state in what is referred to as the living finish. Over time, the finish will oxidize with exposure to nature, adding more character and uniqueness to your custom piece. 

Environmental factors specific to your home that may be exposed to the surface of your fixture are the great unknown. Every finish application and environment are different. Some factors include rain, sun, wind, salt air/proximity to the ocean, pollutants, humidity and cleaning products and household chemicals.
