How Did She Get That Name?

Year of the Metal Tiger Postcard 2010
Metal Tiger chose her name, because like her it brings together man-made and natural elements to create a new idea.  Her name reflects her ethos; to meld the natural and post-modern worlds.

Tigers are the native untamed, courageous and powerful creatures of the tea lands. 
Metal is the industrial element underpinning the advances in modern society and globalisation.

By the Chinese Horoscope, 2010 is the year of the Golden Tiger.  By replacing Gold with Metal her name alludes to the fusion of Eastern and Western cultures.
