Individually Crafted Small Copper Leaf Sculpture
Individually crafted decorative copper leaf sculpture which can be displayed indoor or outdoor.
Image on right shows a selection of leaves hanging in my garden
Each leaf is approximately 8 cm (3.2 inch) long and individually hammered and flame painted.
The wire stem will be approximately 7 cm (3 inch) and will have a few twists and bends on it. You can re-shape it to make it shorter / longer if you wish.
This copper leaf has been made from copper sheet. The copper sheet was cut and the 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 is then left to naturally gain further patina, 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 because of the processes involved. Each leaf you receive will be individually shaped and heated so there will be some variations form the pictures.
Great gift for friends and family! I can make this leaf to order for Wedding / Party Favours, Dinner table decorations and for business gifting.
