Heavy and relatively soft, TIN expresses itself
most clearly in large, straightforward forms;
it is not a metal for delicate, filigree work.
In relation to their size, TIN objacts are always
heavy, static and even monumental.
TIN is an easily damaged material, and therefore
needs a clear, reduced formal idiom in which the
marks of use are not regarded as damage but
instead as a gain in character related to ageing.

Today it is high time for us to take a fresh
look at this attractive material and shape it
into suitable modern forms.
