Corten steel is a material that is very popular with artists. Compared with ordinary steel, corten steel will gradually corrode and age until damaged after rusting. The emergence of weathering steel gives designers the opportunity to make full use of the corrosion form of steel to express in the creation of plastic art, and its unique properties are loved by designers. The corrosion-resistant steel plate will change with time. Its color is greatly affected by the environment and climate, and it is easy to change from bright red-brown to dark blue-gray after being placed for a long time. With the aging of time, the unique color and texture of corten steel full of beauty can reflect the artistic charm of originality. It can trace the sense of the history of the site, record the instant of time, and extend the vitality of the site. Let limited materials “co-exist” with each other, reflecting the sustainable design concept. Have a look at this corten steel ball fountain statue, This is a hollow ball made of weathering steel.
