This bold, mod piece measures 8" x 8" and is made of copper with accents of Sterling silver. Each of the five smaller squares was stamped with either a swish or swirl design then I hand drew tiny circles (bubbles) in all of the background area then eco-etched each piece. The large square was hand hammered then topped with a hand formed swirl made of thin, hammered Sterling silver wire. Flattened balls of Sterling silver granulation were added to each of the squares as embellishment and heat from the torch was used to add a darker patina to all of the negative spaces and show off the swirl designs. A coat of lacquer was applied to protect the color then each square was hand sewn to a hand quilted background of black linen which was then hand sewn to a stretched canvas that had been painted black. The backside is finished with heavy paper and a sawtooth hanger was added.
