Copper flower, based on a magnolia x brooklynensis ‘yellow bird’, with a reclaimed wooden base stained in dark oak. It is approx 17.5cm tall. I’ve treated the petals to give them a dark, aged copper colour. The flower has a layer of lacquer to protect it and keep the colours. It is free-standing.
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. Brazing can leave silvery or dark marks and I’ve included a photo at the base of one of the leaves to show these marks.
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.
