Metaphor Bronze

Item details

Metaphor Bronze was founded by artist, designer and sculptor Jay Gibson during a walk on the rocky coast of Maine while waiting for a ship to come in. Like a lot of ships, strewn against the shoals before they reach the safety of harbor, this one never arrived. Instead, the idea of metal tiles from the textured beach rocks came into being. What began that summer has developed into Metaphor Bronze, and today we continue to thrive as a leader in design, craftsmanship and execution in the realm of American Art Tile. Jay is responsible for sixty percent of the designs; the rest are sculpted by other talented artists, who earn royalties on the sale of their pieces.

Metaphor's tiles are solid cast bronze, made from recycled metal - see "Green Specs" in Support - and hand finished with proprietary patinas using a traditional patina technique that allows us to create a wide and luxurious color palette.

Jay Gibson studied sculpture at Pratt Institute in the late seventies and worked at the Johnson Atelier, a premier bronze art foundry, where he learned the craft of fine art metal casting. Thereafter, he founded Gibson Design, specializing in custom bronze metal work and his own furniture designs, sold through galleries in Manhattan and San Francisco. Jay's designs are currently available exclusively through Metaphor.
