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 January! Happy New Year!
Wow, 2018. Way, way, way, back when I was tad younger, the year 2018 seemed just a far off number that we'd reach, but not for a long time. Along time passed and here we are! Growing up on a farm here in British Columbia, my mom would say that January was one of her favorite months because it was too cold to do much outside work, the crazy Christmas season had come and gone and so she could have a little down time to regroup before the next season started. I also find January as a favorite. There are those who like to look back at the year that was, but as I get older, I'd like to focus on the present. Time is zipping right passed and I find it more and more important not to dwell on stuff that was and can't be changed, but on stuff here and now. Probably a lot easier said than done. Let's make this the year we support our local artists.
