New colour combination

This new triple panel piece was a recent commission collected on Saturday.  
The customers already own several pieces of my metalwork & wanted something special to compliment the existing work.

I had not done a combination of the verdigris & oxidised finishes before....I really like the contrast in colour & texture; the verdigris is quite a soft surface while the oxidised is sharper which gives good definition to the etched details.  I used brass for the base sections & applied a mixture of copper & brass for the decorative elements.

I think I may have to make some additional panels utilising these patination techniques....
