This wall hanging is handmade from copper and enamel.
For some designs, I cut the shapes out then enamel each piece individually, firing them in a kiln at about 800 degrees (c), between three and six times usually. Then I reassemble them and mount them. Others are sheet copper in squares or rectangles that I enamel through stencils that I design and make myself.
The copper sheet is 1.2mm thick.
Each wall hanging is unique; because there can be quite a variation in the way the colours come out of the kiln, each one is slightly different from the next.
Good Boy is doubled mounted and box framed with glass.
The frame is 40x40cms
