Hi and welcome to Clayburn Copperworks.We
are located in Abbotsford British Columbia Canada. A brief
history of copper tells us that man first used copper over
10,000 years ago. Copper has been used for many things through
out the ages, from decorative objects to cooking utensils.
Now of course copper is used in plumbing, electrical components,
wire and a stack of modern uses.
statue of liberty in New York city is made with a skin of
copper. Here at Clayburn Copperworks our history
does not go back quite that far, but we have been around
for a number of years. Here in the shop, we make all our
pieces by hand. Of course modern tools such as torches,
bending and shaping tools and the like, have made the work
a little less demanding, the process of coaxing an object
or piece of art out of sheets of copper has not changed
a whole lot in many years.
Our products here at Clayburn Copperworks range from outdoor
fountains and sculptural pieces to indoor wall hangings.
Custom work is always welcome and we can provide services
from design to installation.
August? So soon? It feels like summer is just starting and already it's August. After August comes.....well we all know what comes then. Although in my neck of the woods, here in the south west corner of British Columbia, it's been super hot and maybe a bit fall coolness wouldn't be so bad. But let's not get too far ahead of our selves. We still have a whole bunch of summer to enjoy! I'm over on Vancouver Island on the 3 4 5 and 6th. of August at the Felberg Festival in Comox. This is one of the Islands premier art shows of the summer and not to be missed. I'll also be back at the Ladner Village Market in Ladner B.C. on the 12th. and 26th. Hope to see lots of people out and about and be sure to support your local artists where ever you are!
