A very good customer of mine asked if I could make a metal wall piece to incorporate a french theme for a gift. Not having spent any time in France myself I had to do some research as to what particular regions are well know for.... I've included a rather fine fish, Champagne bottle & sunflower (which a friend thought was cheese but never mind!) to decorate the plaque. Cutting out the actual map shape was quite tricky as my piercing saw would not fit the size of the piece but after some manoeuvring I manged to cut it out.
I hope the recipient is pleased with the results!
