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.
Happy 2017! Holy cow! 2017. Who actually thinks what it's going to sound like to say the next year. Two days into the year, don't even think about it. But just before, saying the up coming year, is like looking into the future. And of course writing the wrong year on cheques for the next two months. Or am I the only one who still writes cheques. So I'm hoping to do a couple of things with my web site this year. First is of course showing my work. Both old and new. Letting people know what, where, and when I'll be thru out the year. I thought I'd also try ad add a little insight into how a piece of art starts and the process I use to bring it to a finished end. The image below is what's called a study. A small painting that may have some potential. Before the study there may have and been lots of sketches and there may also be more of these studies. This particular '' study '', will hopefully end up as a 3D wall hanging, but for now, it's a 3'' x 4'' little painting. As always, even in the year 2017, support your local artists.
