Last weekend I finally finished a large metalwork piece which had been commissioned by a very good customer. The motifs were inspired by some furnishing fabric they had supplied as a starting point. The main body of the piece was constructed from copper rods with applied copper leaves & brass details. Saw piercing, embossing & stamping added the decorative details & the final finish on the metal was a bronzing solution giving a burnished effect.
Sketch idea...... then leaves cut ready
First section soldered
The completed wall piece measures approx 90cm x 60cm
