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 Canada Day! Happy Birthday to our friends to the south! Well, we hope they're still our friends. Some times there's a lot of stuff that goes on in politics that makes it seem like the two neighbours aren't getting along so well. We hope that the vast majority of both sides see that we are more the same than different and our friendship is more important than who's in charge. I'll be back for two markets in Ladner at the Ladner Village Market on July 8 & 22. Just a heads up for early Aug. I'll be on Vancouver Island at the Filberg Festival in Comox on Aug. 3,4,5,&6. The image I'm showing this month is a part of the process of how a sculpture happens. These are called maquettes or models. I use these after the sketch stage and before a full size pc. is made. These small pcs. can be adjusted and fiddled with before committing to a pc. As always, get out there and support your local artists!
