All of Anvil Metals products are handcrafted by Becky Waehner in her alternative printing, photography, and metalsmithing studio in Raleigh, NC. She prints all of her own work using a specialized printer and dye. When the dye image and aluminum are placed in a commercial heat press the magic happens. The high heat and intense pressure from the air compressor vaporizes the dye and fuses it permanently into the surface of the aluminum. This process creates a waterproof and scratch resistant work of art.
