Copper flower, based on a peony, with a wooden base. The base is made from reclaimed wood and has been stained dark oak colour. The flower is approx 18cm tall. The flower has been treated with lacquer to try to keep the bright copper colour.
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 also leaves small silvery marks – one of the photos of the flower from above shows these marks.
Every item I make is unique, therefore the one you receive may differ a little from the one shown in the photo (in particular, it may have two or three leaves). 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.
