The exhibition was conceived to explore some of the specific formal properties of various metals used in design.
Iron Table by Derek McLeod
The words used to describe its characteristics are strong: mass, heft, density, solidity, substance, darkness, power, permanence, and authenticity. The exhibition's atmosphere can be described as quietly confident.

There is nothing flashy about the pieces on display; if anything, they evoke a sense of calm. The metal's heft is played up and its presence is imposing.
New & Improved Chair by Chromoly
The cast metal items in the show include domestic objects, furniture, lighting and conceptual explorations.
Great Lakes by Joy Charbonneau & Ed Zec
Heavy Metal continues at Paul Petro Special Projects in Toronto through January 30, 2010.
