Copper flower, based on a helianthus ‘lemon queen’ (sunflower family), with a wooden base. The flower has been treated to give the copper an aged copper colour and protected with lacquer. The base is reclaimed wood that has been stained dark oak colour. The flower is approx 17cm tall.
I make the copper flowers by cutting out layers of petals, any sepal and leaves from sheet copper, texturing these and then brazing them onto a copper pipe or wire stem. The top and bottom layer of petals are brazed into place with the other layers sandwiched between them. This does mean that the layers can sometimes move, but if they do move, they can easily be put back into place. This flower has 3 layers of petals.
Every item I make is unique. If you want a variation to this item, please get in touch because I can do custom orders. Also, please get in touch if you would like more information.
