copper rose by knivesandroses copper rose by knivesandroses
Forged and formed copper rose made from bar and sheet copper. The color is a patina obtained by heating in the forge fire and then quenching at the proper time. The temperature and atmosphere within the forge has to be controlled carefully. The colors are stable though and last.

This is lovely. It reminds me of something in a book I read once, a magical tree of iron that bloomed copper roses.

Mine gets a lot of attention, though it's not my normal work. I did one on a whim and had many requests for more. I'm still thinking of how to patina the steel for color. So far I've only made two.

Thanks..... I just sold that one and now I get to make another.
While I like the enameled roses better, most of the responses have been on the copper rose which shows a heat coloring. That particular rose will not heat color to a red. Instead, it goes to a tarnished color. At first, I rejected the color as bad. But, when I began to get so much positive feedback, I changed my perception of it in response. One thing I have learned over the years is that My own viewpoint is not the only valid viewpoint. Well, thanks again. Hope to hear from you another time. Smitty
