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.
Way back in January, when we thought of Oct., that's way far away and not to be even given a second thought. Boom! It's here! and If Oct.'s here, Nov. / Dec. are just around the corner. I'm all done with markets for the year, well, I do have my one and only Christmas market Nov. 18th. to the 20th. at Heritage in Chilliwack B.C., but that's a long way off. Right. The image below is a model of two sculptures that will be at the entrance to a senior's complex in Richmond B.C. I hope to have them installed early next month and an image here in Nov. No matter where your at when you read this, there's bound to be local artists out there in your community and it's your job to get out there and support them.
