metalsmith & designer
These ornamental vessels are an extension of the concept behind Cornwall Contained. Made with Pewter & Copper, these vessels embody the heritage industries of Cornwall that have shaped the culture, economics and landscape of the county
Both metal parts are raised, which is the technique of hammering a flat disc of metal over various shaped steel stakes to create a seamless form.
The copper element has been patinated to create the intense blue. The surface of the copper has been slightly etched by this process.
The two parts are then stapled together with copper wire that has been reclaimed from old electrical wire.
These two vessels are companion pieces but can be purchased separately.
Please contact Rebecca with any questions about these pieces.
