Description

Copper flower, based on a waterlily/water lily, with a wooden base.  The base is reclaimed wood, stained dark oak colour.  The flower is about 10cm tall and 10cm diameter across the leaf.  I treated the petals of the flower to give a dark, aged copper colour, but the leaf is still bright copper.  The flower has a layer of lacquer protection.

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 texture and on this flower there is a bit of this in the centre.

Every item I make is unique.  Currently I only one of these made so if you would like more than one it will take a bit of time to make and the flower may not be exactly the same.  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.
