Various copper sculptures

Featured are pictures of some of the copper sculptures that I've made over the last couple of years. Traditionally copper is given as a 7th anniversary gift and also a 22nd anniversary gift, but it makes a wonderful gift for any occasion or reason.

Copper is a wonderful material to work with and while it takes on the appearance of gold when polished, applying heat can produce myriad other colours, which adds to its appeal. Copper skull

People are reputed to have been using copper for at least 8,000 years, and with the advent of creating copper alloys with the addition of tin, the harder metal bronze was made, which lead to stronger tools and weapons.

One of the most iconic copper sculptures must be the Statue of Liberty, the surface of which is a green patina caused by oxidation. I'm not quite on the scale of such an ambitious project, but I like to hope that my sculptures will stand the test of time in the same way.
