Variation: Each piece is hand-crafted individually and will vary slightly in appearance. When ordering you will receive a replica of the original design using the same colour palette. Slight differences in the design and beading will occur due to the hand-made nature of copper metalwork. The photographs in the gallery show a number of versions of the design on multiple backgrounds to give the most true to life image. The verdigris treatment prematurely oxidises the metal, creating a grungey textured and mottled copper/green/blue patina finish. Each set of leaves will differ in appearance, some pale, some vibrant etc, all part of the distressed design.
Wood: The top of the mobile is a sanded tree branch without its’ bark that is tactile and warm. The fallen timber has been stripped, sanded and finished with a natural colour oil. The wood used will vary in colour, thickness and shape as it is fallen timber, it may be darker or lighter when the bark has been removed and waxed, or with a straighter/wonkier line as each piece is unique.
Metal: Each copper leaf has been hand-cut, shaped individually, filed and polished with a green/blue verdigris pigment patina effect. The leafy droplets are made from solid copper metal and are sealed with a gloss varnish.
Hangings: Metal flex wire with a loop at the top for hanging. Each droplet has a swivel barrel at the top which means they can rotate 360 degrees with free movement.
Top Bar Approx: 40cm / 15.7 inches.
Longest Droplet Approx: 38cm / 14.9 inches.
