"Tie Plate" Fine Art Print

Current stock: 0

Custom Prints by our own Master Photographer, Reeves Smith. 

Worn from ages of use and rusted to a red-orange patina, "Plate" immortalizes the heavily-distressed and well-worn metal as it arrives to us before being cleaned up for our furniture.

Simple to suit a modern interior or the more refined rustic or American-themed style, it is a versatile piece for any designer to have in their bag.

Through this series, we've captured the essence and beauty of the railroad that some of our tools have achieved through years of hard work in highly skilled hands and at the mercy of the unforgiving massive locomotives and countless railcars. 

Available in two sizes. Each size can be purchased professionally framed, or as a print only.   

TOOLS is an unbiased collection of fine art photographs created by photographer Reeves Smith in conjunction with Rail Yard Studios. Rail Yard Studios designs upscale custom furniture made from reclaimed railroad steel in their Nashville Tennessee studio. For more print inquires please contact us.
