Copper Repousse Wall Sculpture

This 25" wall sculpture was hammer formed from 16 gauge copper sheet metal. This is one of a series of wall relief sculptures I have made based on coral formations, using the process of repousse and chasing. I used pitch as a backing for this one but switched to wet clay for the others. I found I was spending 2 hours or more each workday just heating and cooling the pitch,burning and chipping it off and setting it up again.
