A one-off metalwork creation inspired by the Cornish coast made by Sharon McSwiney in St Ives, Cornwall.
18 individual small metal 'tiles' are adorned with texture & colour in copper & brass. The pieces have been etched which creates the surface details. Flux and heat create the interesting colour variations & acrylic the verdigris effects. Each section is unique as the effects can never be replicated exactly the same.
The pieces have 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 approx 45cm x 25cm & 3.5cm deep. The metal background pieces measure approx 5cm x 5cm cm. The piece is signed & dated on the reverse.
