new work

Happy to show some new work. I have wanted to explore metal work and to make more copper leaves like those I made a few years ago at a metalsmithing course.  The copper strips were a fairly heavy gauge and hard to manipulate. I am really happy with the colouring I got on the leaves. I definitely want to make more leaves, not sure on what yet.

Steven made this basket based on a paper basket I had made. I coloured the rim. I love the colours in this too. It has some lovely red spots. I want to try this again but in a lighter gauge metal.
