Workshop: “Copper Beech Leaf”
Date: September 29, 2018
Copper Beech is one of my favourite trees, especially when the fall paints the leaves in deep hues of brown, equal to copper patinas. This projects explores the possibilities of working with raw, untreated copper wire, and colouring the finished lace with metalsmith’s methods. The lace design is based on a simple point ground net with thick gimp which creates lines and shading.
The Copper Beech leaf can be finished as a pendant or art object.
