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.
Yes, it's April already. Depending on where you live, it can be the start of spring or a continuation of stinking winter. For some of us artist's, now is the time we're finalizing our summer markets and shows. These are super important, for as you may or may not know, artists need to make a living. So choosing the right, hopefully, markets is always tricky. Go back to the ones you've done at before, or try and expand to new areas with new buyers. If there's a magic formula out there to choosing the best ones, please call me! My studio is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10- 4pm. As Always, try and get out there and support your local artists.
