18” length "Itty Bitty" Firepaintings HOLIDAY GIFT FAVORITE
Firepainted 5/8" diameter copper circle with bright sanded rim dangles from an 18” sterling silver box chain with a lobster clasp which I darken with a patina. It is finished with a sterling silver lobster clasp. Shown with an 18"L chain for comparison on neck form. I see a black bird, abstract and painterly landscapes in these. What do you see?
Please note: The itty bitty firepaintings shown have sold but I have more in the works so select "Surprise me!" in the drop down for your unique piece.
What is "Painting with Fire"?
I use a torch on copper sheet in an 11 step hot and cold process to obtain vibrant colors. No chemicals or dyes are used. The copper is the canvas, while the torch and flame are the brush and paint, creating the glorious patterns and luminous hues on each hand cut shape. Each one is a surprise as I "fire-paint" until I see something magical happening. I die cut each "itty bitty" piece.
Each piece is hand brushed individually with a top grade permanent lacquer and since the sterling silver chain has been darkened with a patina there is no care involved. Please only clean with water.
