Etched Metals Collection

I etch all of the metal components - copper, brass, bronze, and nickel silver - in this collection myself. While a few shapes come pre-cut, most start out as sheet metal. I cut and file each piece, apply the design and use a liquid etchant to etch all areas of the metal that aren’t covered by the design. After cleaning, filing and polishing each piece, I apply a patina to bring out the design and then apply a sealant to prevent tarnishing. I sign each one-of-a-kind piece by engraving them on the back with my initials, as well as the month and year.
