Rust & Roses is a family owned business located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Since 2008, we have worked together running our IT business but we were looking for a creative outlet. So in the fall of 2016 we decided to buy our first CNC plasma table. What started in our garage has grown so much since those first days. We now offer a wide range of original designs, create custom designs with our clients and have recently expanded to offering products out of other materials like wood and acrylic.
By bringing together our love for design and technology, we are able to create unique, intriguing design pieces, one of a kind art and custom metal fabricated elements.
Barb graduated from the Graphic Design Program at St. Lawrence College in 2000. Since then she has worked in print design and as a freelance designer. More recently she started working with 3D design software and has expanded her portfolio to include web design.
Josh has always had an interest in all things metal and tech. Growing up in rural Ontario, he spend a fair bit of time working on cars with his father or helping with his neighbor's farm. He also had a natural knack for electronics and would fix the computers at school. Over the years, he worked for a number of local IT firms before starting his own company in 2007. In his free time, Josh enjoys working on cars, welding and metal fabrication.
We have a CNC plasma table which can cut steel, aluminum and stainless steel. We also have a commercial laser that can cut and engrave on other materials.

How do I care for my bare metal items?
You can spray the item with a name-brand furniture polish. Let it sit for a bit so the oils penetrate the steel that wipe with a soft cloth. We recommend doing this on a regular basis to protect the steel.
You can also finish your item with a paint recommended for metal. Make sure the surface is clean and lightly sand off any rust. Follow the instructions from the paint manufacturer on how to properly prep the surface.
Oil products will maintain the steel if used as per manufacturers recommendations.
