Since working with metal is usually a laborious process that involves lots of time, effort and skill, good metal artwork pieces are hard to come by. However, the versatility of metal enables artists to create so many designs, with such greatly differing themes. Consequently, metal pieces of art can adorn just about any style of interior design, from the classic, to the Zen-inspired, to ultra-modern, minimalist homes. Explore our list and be amazed by geometric, abstract, floral and other nature-inspired designs. They would look great in your home, don’t you think?
1. Sienna Abstract

It’s perfect for a rustic kind of design with a clear Southwestern feel. It combines ebony, amber, mahogany in a rich color palette that will glimmer wonderfully underneath your pendant lighting fixture. It can be placed with great effect in a living area, family room, bedroom or foyer and will look awesome in a pair, hung vertically on both sides of a Southwestern themed painting or print.

3. Fragmented Circle
There is so much geometry here that it’s no wonder this item made our list of best metal artwork pieces. There are rectangles, circles, squares, circle sections and double spirals. The complex piece also layers multiple patterns and is designed with class, style and elegance in mind. The color palette also enhances this effect, as it shines in rich brown, copper, black and mahogany. The design manages to look contemporary, yet nearly antique at the same time, in a perfect blend of timeless beauty.
4. Tuscan Grilles
Unlike the other metal artwork pieces featured so far, which were singular designs, this piece is a four-item set of wall panels. The design capitalizes on the increasing demand on Tuscany-inspired interior design and decorative elements. They come in natural shades of brown – color does not overpower the delicately intricate design, but helps the artistry of the metalwork stand out. You can play with the layout of these pieces whichever way you want – hang them in a horizontal or vertical line or separately, in different rooms.
5. Sophisticated Pottery
Try this abstract design which combines simple geometry with a tree motif, as well as with a 2D rendition of three different items of pottery.

The dramatic design is ideal for adorning a dining room. The colors are both rich and subtle, with silver, brown, persimmon and gold coming together to create a memorable, stand-out piece for any home.
6. Autumn Oak
Celebrate the delicate beauty of nature with this addition to our list of superb metal artwork pieces. This is a genuine wall sculpture that blends the frailty of thin branches with the suave colors of leaves: leaf green, autumn brown, gold and tan. This piece is truly majestic and features the oak, nature’s most exalted tree, which symbolizes enduring strength and courage. The tree’s entire cycle of life is featured, from seed to leaf to acorn. The piece’s surface reflects light, and since the design is substantial in size, it will be a dramatic addition to any room, be it a bedroom, a dining room or a day area.
7. Filled with Music
This design is as effective and popular as it is simple and timeless – a score with a treble clef and several notes, fading away into infinite artistic enjoyment.

Use it to adorn your music or media room if you have one, but don’t shy away from hanging it up on any wall in your home or office.
8. Mighty Oak
Featuring natural colors, brown and black, the majestic, massive and mighty oak tree is likely to impress anyone who walks in through the door to your day area or dining room. The tree stands alone and branches out in multiple directions, to symbolize constant growth and evolution, as well as the power to endure all setbacks and obstacles. Its stark beauty is most apparent in the details, which glimmer graciously in the light. The design, very suggestive of the tranquility of nature is perfect for any wall and any room in your house.

Nature designs are very popular when it comes to metal artwork pieces, and this abstract, delicate and elegant item in the natural etchings series stands to reinforce this idea. The trees stand tall in late autumn, as suggested by their colors: brown, green, gold and copper. This is veritable art, with each tree depicting a different point in time, a different season and, on a more philosophical level, a different stage in the natural progression of life. Each two-by-three foot three is entirely unique.
