New Copper Project

| | | |

I've been busy on a new commission this past week, making a pair of copper vessels.   These are to be smaller versions of the large evaporating dishes used on the old sugar cane plantations here in the Caribbean.   The actual ones are anywhere from three to six feet in diameter and usually made from either copper or cast iron.  The syrup pressed from the sugar canes is put in these dishes and heated over a charcoal fire for days and days until the syrup is reduced to molasses, a more compact form for shipping to the homeland where it is then fermented and distilled into rum.  There are literally hundreds of these things scattered around the island, mostly being used as "yard art" or planters/fish ponds, and they are in big demand by decorators.
