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.
If we think about November from, say the first till, maybe the tenth or so, we can tell ourselves- We've got plenty of time yet this year. No reason to panic about those unfinished 2017 projects. Then about the middle of the month, the not to panic thing flips on it's head! Holy butter cups Bat Man! The year's nearly done! The summer stuff you were going to do in the fall and the fall stuff you were, well were, might not get done. It's never to early to start a new project schedule for 2018. I'm at the 43rd. Annual Chilliwack Christmas Craft Market Nov. 17, 18, & 19th. in beautiful Chilliwack B.C. Hope to see lots of you out and about. This is a busy season for a lot of artists and with your support to your local artists, hopefully a successful one. As always, support your local artists.
