I love the effect of oxidised copper (known as a Patina) because it reminds me of the colours of the ocean. It conjures up a Caribbean beach, an underwater wonderland and the spectaculars vistas of our own Jersey waters from a cliffpath on a sunny day….
So the plan is to open them up, lay them out, cut them up, and create a patchwork skin over the steel. And what’s cool is that each section of copper will oxidise in its own special way to reveal a stunning effect. That’s the plan anyway…!!
