This luscious piece is 8" x 8" and is made of copper, bronze, brass and gold filled with accents in Sterling silver. Each of the four units has a background that has been brushed or hand hammered. Atop of the backgrounds sit bars of embossed copper or brass along with a bevy of hand cut, hand hammered, embossed or etched circles in a mix of the metals. Round and flattened balls of Sterling silver granulation adorn each unit. All of the layers have been soldered in place then the units were prepared with a bright, shiny finish which is protected by a layer of lacquer. The units were then hand stitched to a hand quilted, black linen, background which was then hand stitched to a stretched canvas that had been painted black. The backside in very nicely finished with a heavy paper and a sawtooth hanger was added.
