Horizon Copper Plate
Now Available! Shop Now at MyAmericanCrafts for this striking copper Horizon Plate handcrafted by Studio G7.
Flaming color in undulating waves cross the surface of this wall mounted copper plate - a colorful addition to home or office. Evocative of perhaps a mountain landscape, the rich iridescent shades range from oranges to greens with a hint of blue.
"Flame painting" is a method of causing a piece of copper to change color through applying heat with a torch. Copper goes through a series of color changes when it is heated. Usually these follow the same order but environmental factors can affect the color results. The biggest changes come from changes in humidity; different colors on a rainy day as opposed to a dry sunny day. The metal worker uses a torch to "paint" patterns, lines or images on the surface of the metal using heat to create beautiful iridescent shades. The piece may be cooled or "quenched" then re-heated many times for the desired effect. A clear sealer insures the color will not change over time.
Each plate is unique-no two will ever be the same; but all are beautiful!
