Upcycling Adventures: New Copper Cuffs

New Upcycled Copper Cuffs added to my online shop recently

Upcycled some salvaged copper and made 2 new copper cuffs last last month. As always I had a lot of fun air-chasing and fold-forming and playing with my hammers and daps… Heaven!

The copper came from an old copper tank. Once upon a time this piece of copper was probably part of someone’s central heating system! 😮. I am lucky enough to know some very nice people who help me find old copper.

Sharing some pictures of the progress here:

13 Aprl: Work in Progress – Annealing copper before it can be hammered any more.
The number from the copper tank is visible on this piece at the moment. Once I finish air-chasing and hammering I am not sure how much will remain.
There is still a lot of work to do on this LUNAR Cuff.

20 April: Amazing what you can do with a bit of copper from an old tank! 😀
That fold-formed cuff I started a few days back is nearly ready. And it is looking great!

I still have some fold formed cuffs in my online shop but not many left. New pieces will be added soon.

21 April: This cuff from another piece of salvaged copper has turned out quite nice too! Just needs a patina and it will be ready for the website.
I am feeling really pleased with the way things are going at the moment. 😊

I really enjoyed making it!

From the same sheet I have made lots of my very popular fold formed leaf sculptures too. But that’s a post for another day. Right now I have to get a few small items finished for the Lamport Hall Show at the week-end.

I will leave you with a picture of the leaves I made 🙂
