Hand forged Flame Painted Hammered Copper Bowl
Hand beaten round Flame Painted Copper Bowl.
The ruffled edges of this bowl make it look like a flower. I am really pleased that I was able to achieve this result and look on my very first attempt at making a deep bowl in this style. I have made small copper trays with ruffled edges before but not a deeper bowl like this one.
My handcrafted copper bowls and trays are great for tea-lights, candles, incense sticks, pot-pourri or just as a decorative display piece on your coffee / side table.
This round copper bowl is handmade from pure sheet copper and each piece is a one off. This piece has been given some colour using a propane torch – this is what we call a flame painted patina.
This one is approximately 15 cm in diameter and approximately 4.5 cm deep.
I can make these bowls to order for Wedding Favours and presents.
Please Note: Most of my copper designs have been given an antique, flame or colour patina. However, copper will continue to darken naturally over time as it reacts with the oxygen in the air. Personally, I feel, this natural oxidation process gives your item an ageless, timeless look which is part of the charm of individually handcrafted copper pieces.

I have also made a video but it is about 2 hours long! It will need a lot of editing before I can put it on youtube.
