Who are Kastawayz and what are they about?

We are a husband and wife team focused on creating beautiful art for your home and garden using 100% recycled metals.

We live in Port Alberni, Vancouver Island, BC Canada. As we are from a fishing town and on the Westcoast, our art features an extremely strong salmon and ocean theme, the birds and trees are a must as everyone loves them!

The primary focus with our art is on the utilization and upcycling of old and discarded metal materials - at times we will also incorporate old lumber to complement our metal work. Every single creation is cut freehand using a handheld plasma - this in turn with the metals rusty patina, pitted steel, faded worn paint, holes and scratches gives it its own unique story, character and personality. We never buy new product, EVERYTHING is recycled and reused and there is no 'process' used to age the metal and give it a rusty look, it is all in its original patina or colour as it was sourced. This is really important to us and is something that we have been doing in all aspects of our lives for over 25 years.

Working with only recycled metals means we create what we see from what we have on hand at the time, this makes custom requests seldom possible. We do however strive to keep our work fresh, fun and unique, offering something for everyone.
