A one off metalwork creation inspired by the Cornish coast made by Sharon McSwiney in St Ives, Cornwall.
A brass mermaid character has been soldered onto a brass background with decorative brass & copper seaweed. There is also a little 'mermaid's purse' included on this one. The pieces have been etched which creates the surface details. Also embossing is utilised to make the raised 'bubbles'. The pieces are individually silver soldered onto the brass back plate to contrast the colours. Flux and heat create the interesting colour variations & acrylic the verdigris effects. The piece has been lacquered to highlight the colours & protect the surface.
The metalwork is mounted into an open deep 'tray'style frame which can be freestanding or wall mounted.
SIZE: The frame is 19.5cm x 19.5cm & 3.5cm deep. The metal piece measures approx 11 cm x 13.5 cm. The piece is signed & dated on the reverse & initialed on the front.
