The copper box is formed from a sheet of copper that has been embossed with a lovely paisley pattern, and oxidized to highlight the pattern. The lid's colors are a blue, green, and red abstract floral pattern. Makes a beautiful, practical gift for yourself or a loved one.
First, the container shape is hand-cut from embossed copper sheet and shaped into a box. the edges of the box are soldered closed. The lid is cut from copper into a circle and slightly domed to fit the box, with a copper band fused to the underside of the lid that fits securely into the box. The copper is carefully cleaned and prepared in order to accept the enamel. Then, I apply multiple layers of enamel, which is finely powdered glass. The layers of enamel are fused to the copper on both sides in a 1500 degree kiln. This firing process is repeated several times until the desired effects are achieved.
The box lid is counter-enameled (fired on both sides) for extra stability. Finally, the edges are sanded to expose the copper. And voila .... a vibrantly colored container which will make a great gift for yourself or a loved one.
Measures 1 7/8" diameter x 1 1/4" deep, and is signed on the bottom. The lid measures 2 1/4" in diameter. Container will arrive in a box with ribbon and gift tag, ready for gifting.
