Reflection Pieces

My reflection pieces capture my thought process about aging.
Many people struggle with the effect of advancing years on their appearance. When it comes to copper and brass I am much more attracted to older metal with patina which has more character. I am still working through the process of applying this generosity and kindness to my my own aging process.
In the meantime I create these wall hangings from copper, brass and sometimes tin. The metals are a mix of old and new while the patina is sometimes a natural occurrence but often man made.

This photo is just one example of the outcome of this process. I can make these to any size and in a great variety of colors. I am often commissioned to create a piece to fit a particular space.

I make everything in this piece: cutting the squares, hole punching them, applying patinas and twisting them together with stainless steel. The forged rod sits in brackets that I forge.
These are often commission pieces created to fit a certain space.
