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 attracted to older metal with patina, which has far more character. I am still working through the process of applying this generosity and kindness to my own aging process. 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.

Everything in this piece I make by hand—from cutting the squares and hole punching to applying patinas and twisting them together with stainless steel. The forged rod sits in brackets that I forge in my studio.

These pieces are often commissioned to fit a certain space. I can make these to any size and in a great variety of colors.
