A one off metalwork creation inspired by beach combing for limpets on the Cornish coast.
A mini metal panel in copper & brass with etched & applied limpet motifs.
A copper or brass section has etched decorative limpet designs. Flux and heat create the interesting colour variations & acrylic the verdigris effects. The links are soldered closed in between each section so will not pull apart.
The piece has been lacquered to highlight the colours & protect the surface.
SIZE: The piece measures approx 24.5 cm x 6 cm. The square pieces are approx 5 cm x 5 cm
Designed for indoor display but could be placed outside - the metals will not rust but would patinate gently over time.
The last section has SMc initials stamped into it.
