Metalwork Panels

Leafy wall panel

Triple Falling Leaves Panel
Copper & Brass

Unique decorative wall hangings produced in copper & brass.  Every section is individually created using a variety of techniques including etching, embossing, hammering, fusing & soldering.  Further embellishment is added through the heating process; patina & oxides develop during making.

Available in a variety of sizes or can be commissioned to suit your interior.

My recent work features etched leaves with earthy rich colours; warm reds, oranges & gold.  More abstract designs are inspired by textiles, Ethnic art & occasionally include found objects.

Alternative colours available are bronzed/brown & gold or soft verdigris finish.

Leafy Metalwork

This work has developed over the last few years to enable me to work in a freer style.  The pieces are not pre-designed but evolve from the etched motifs available, the curves & scrolls formed in the copper rods & wires and again the heating process develops the colours/patinas.

Inspired by the birds which visit my feeders at the studio I have now introduced wrens & blue-tits to the foliage.  I intend to expand upon this collection of natural motifs.

These pieces can be made to commission too & larger scale work can be undertaken.

Small Metalwork

I also produce a range of smaller scale metalwork in copper & brass, from individual leaves to small ‘Love Bird’ plaques plus a collection of Christmas decorations.

Garden Sticks

Some of my designs I have translated into  Garden Sticks which can be purely decorative or could be used as a plant support (particularly useful for orchids).  These have been etched in either copper or brass, then soldered together on a sturdy brass rod.  They range in size from 45cm to 50cm tall. Some of the pieces have been treated to verdigris the surface.
