Project Description

These oversized maple leaves were hammered into shape from copper sheet metal using the process of repousse and chasing. They range in size from about 24-40 inches across. They are made in two layers, a flat back and a pushed out front, welded together along the edges and filled with concrete. They were left outside in a North Carolina neighborhood to weather and take on their own unique natural patina.
