ALEX TESELSKY (STATE OF COPPER)

We constructed this Copper and Stone bar in our Michigan log cabin. We wanted to hang an appropriate piece of art to complete the project. Our desire was to make an image of the Great Lakes on the leftover copper.
 
Not wanting to re-invent the wheel, we searched but were unable to find any tutorials on the internet, or any evidence of a company or of an individual who has ever done anything like. So... we invented our own process.
 
Our Copper Pieces are not laser cut outs. They are all signed-original pieces of Copper Art (Wall Jewelry).
 
Produced using a painstaking, 42 step process beginning with a flat a piece of heavy gauge copper and a variety of natural acids. 
 
When the desired look is achieved, crystal clear resin is applied.  This protective coating is the equivalent of 200+ coats of polyurethane. This halts the possibility of further oxidation and protects your Copper Artwork for future generations.
