PROCESS

From a 3'x8' sheet of copper I cut various sizes with a sheet metal shear. With a deburring wheel on a bench grinder I sand all of the edges meticulously. With a template, which I design and make, I use a hydraulic press to emboss the image into the sheet copper. Next, I continue to define the image using smaller tools for further detail. With a torch and glass enamel I am able to enhance the copper surface and play with colour. I then wash and polish the copper design and finish with a light coat of wax to protect the surface and enhance the sheen.

Copper panels are 7"x7" with a wire soldered on the back for hanging. Enamel can be done in different colour combinations.
