History of Copper

Copper could quite possibly have been the first metal to be put to use by our ancestors.  It was discovered in 8000 BC and was made first into weapons by the Egyptians in 6000 BC. Today copper is used as a main conductor of heat and electricity. When exposed to moist air it has a chemical reaction known as verdigris. This name comes from “vert-de-grice”, old French for “Green of Greece”. The Statue of Liberty is a victim of this reaction. However, all of my pieces have been treated to keep their lustrous finish. Please explore my website to familiarize yourself with my work.  And if you have a chance come to one of the upcoming shows I will be attending or a gallery that represents me.
