My art consists of copper and brass media; it varies from flowers and plants to trays, plates, bowls, and wall hangings. Most of the materials have been rescued from the salvage yard with other materials being picked up as scrap from local sheet metal businesses. All the bowls, vessels, plates, and trays are one piece hammered from a flat piece of material. The metal takes on a life of its own; no two pieces are the same. Each piece is a valuable learning lesson and I find it fascinating to see how you can move the metal. I am working on mastering where I move it to.
