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.
Summer is closing and autumn is about to start. I love the fall. Cooler days. Cooler nights. I love the summer as well, but a change in seasons is always a special thing. I now look forward to more fallish stuff, like raking leaves. That's right. I like raking leaves. It's one of those tasks that gives a feeling of getting a job done. I guess unless you have to rake the same lawn over and over again. Even then, you know that by looking up and seeing how many more leaves are still on the tree, this job will not last forever. With the fall comes the end to the summer markets. My last one is Sept. the 11 in beautiful Ladner B.C. at the Ladner Village Market. If you haven't been yet this year, now's the time. For everybody else out there, make sure and get out to what ever art market is close to you and support your local artists.
