Copper leaves on my mind... lots of leaves, different shapes, different techniques, so many ideas...
I am thinking of new designs for the forthcoming ESC Artists exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre and these leaves are going to play a big part in at least 3 pieces I am creating. Maybe more than three but I am aiming for minimum three pieces.
Copper leaves are fun to make and I have been using them a lot in my work in jewellery, tea-light holders and as decorative sculptures. They look quite realistic and take patina so well and look quite autumnal after flame painting.
Some of the leaf shapes cut out and textured. This comment made my day when I posted the picture on facebook :-)
Leaf Spray in different sizes... Definitely one of the design plans
Water Feature? A possibility...
And wherever else my imagination takes me.
Come to our exhibition in October to see the finished pieces. Here are the dates for your diary
