Ductwork is galvanized sheet metal. It will weather fairly well. It also bends easily, so you can create a variety of things from this. I would disassemble the rectangle first. They are generally two halves that pop together with little "buttons" on the edges. Use a flat screwdriver to release these buttons and it will come apart. Then you can flatten the metal and start fresh! Wear gloves! Galvy is extremely sharp like a knife.
