Made by a husband and wife duo D. and Kendall in their garage studio, these copper sea life creatures will bring your walls to life. D. and Kendall begin with a heavy 16 ounce (per square foot) sheet of copper that is custom manufactured by Revere Copper to an extreme measure of purity and demanding specifications.
A copper wire is brazed on the back of each wall hanging piece for easy attachment to a small nail or picture hanger. If hanging outdoors, we recommend you do so in a wind protected area or bring the piece indoors during episodes of high winds.
The green patina (verdigris) on parts or all of some pieces is what occurs over time to unprotected copper exposed to the elements and is the reason copper implements thousands of years old are still being found in reasonably good condition.
On some of their pieces, D. and Kendall accelerate this process by brushing on an acid solution, exposing it to a fine water mist until the patina forms, and then blowing off any clear coated areas with compressed air to prevent water spots.
