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.
First full month of Fall! Halloween! Darkness! O.K. Maybe the darkness part isn't so fun, but we mustn't grumble. Even October has it's good bits. All those jobs/tasks you had planned for the summer of 2018, don't worry about them! Too late to do out door stuff now. Right. But the leaves will start to fall soon, that takes up tons of time, though it is good exercise. The wind will start to blow soon too. Branches to clean up. Looks like those 2018 summer jobs that you put off will be replaced with 2018 Fall jobs. The image below is an example of some small 4'' x 6'' copper ''cards'' I've been making. Great little gifts! No markets this month, but the shops open most days or call ahead to make sure. Remember to get out there and support your local artists.
