These eye catching leaves are perfect as Christmas decorations but why hide them away once the season has passed?! The simplicity and timelessness of their design makes them suitable to display all year round. They look particularly effective as wall hangings or inside a box frame. As a piece of original craftwork it is completely unique and would make a wonderful gift for a loved one or a treat for yourself.
Each leaf is handcrafted by upcycling old copper pipe using traditional metal smithing techniques. The copper has been cut, drilled and filed, then forged (shaped using heat and compression), and finished. The process involves annealing the copper a number of times to keep it workable. This has the side effect of creating some really beautiful surface patination - which has been preserved where possible.
The leaves in the picture are the ones you will recieve, however, if you have a particular leaf you would like to have made, a different metal, or even some customised text in mind, please do contact me to discuss.
