Forever Copper


Italian Brushed Copper 4x6 Photo Frame (LEO Design)


Copper has always been one of my favorite materials.  I love the soft, warm color.  I adore the way it darkens richly with age—ever so s-l-o-w-l-y.  And I cherish the way the soft metal accepts (and preserves) any evidence of the craftsman's handwork: hammering, threading, etching.  There's a reason that this element is called "The Eternal Metal."  It is stable, slowly-changing, and remains reliably useful.  Copper has been popular in many aesthetic movements, including the Arts & Crafts school.

This brushed-copper 4" x 6" photo frame, made in Italy, has a wooden back and easel stand (which allows it to be displayed either horizontally or vertically).  Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
