Decorative Copper Leaf Sculpture, Fold Formed
The leaf is 19 cm long, the whole sculpture including the wire stem is 30 cm.
This copper leaf has been made from copper sheet. The copper sheet was cut and the large leaf individually hand-made using a technique called fold forming.
Once the leaf shape was ready it was given a patina using a butane torch flame which brings out lovely colours in copper. The leaf has been left un-waxed to naturally gain further patina.
The copper will continue to darken naturally over time as it reacts with the oxygen in the air.
The making process makes each copper leaf unique and individual. A few pictures of the making process have been posted on my Instagram account from time to time.
