Copper flower, based on a rose, with a wooden base. The base is made from reclaimed wood and has been stained dark oak colour. The flower is approx 19cm tall. It 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 can leave some silvery marks at joints.
I only have one rose made and when I was shaping the petals I accidentally managed to damage one of the leaves. The leaf has been repaired, but viewed from the underside the repair is a slightly different colour. The repair is not visible from above. I’ve included photos so you can see the repair from above and below.
Every item I make is unique, therefore the one you receive may differ a little from the one shown in the photo. 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.
