These copper pieces are flame painted with the use of an oxy-propane torch. There are no chemicals, paints, or stains added to achieve the colors. There is also much grinding and shaping work done to achieve the movement in the pieces. The copper is sealed with a powder coat finish once completed. This protects the piece from any patina. The only care required is to clean the piece with glass cleaner if ever needed. Otherwise just enjoy!
The pieces were inspired and designed from the Forrest Fenn Thrill of the Chase. We incorporated as may elements of the chase as we could. Each piece is stamped on the back with a number #01 - 80 for collectors. Each piece will also come with a certificate of authenticity, and is personally signed by the artists, Daniel and Frances Hedblom.
The size of each piece is approx. 8 inches wide x 17 inches tall.
How numbered pieces are assigned to orders is completely random. We drew numbers, 1 - 80, before the sale started and assigned them to the corresponding orders. In other words, just because you have order #1 doesn't mean you're going to get piece #01.
We are making they pieces as orders come in. Please give us 2 weeks or so to get your order to you. We want to insure they best quality goes into each piece.
Shipping anywhere in the Continental United States is $20.00. Outside of the U.S. will have an extra charge.
If there is any damage to your piece when it arrives save everything including the art, the box, and the packing and get a hold of us immediately. We can remake the piece.
The name of the piece is "Where Warm Waters Halt" and was chosen through a contest we held. Two fellow searches came up with the winning name and will each receive a free piece. There was another drawing of numbers to randomly assign the numbered piece they will receive. We actually went to Forrest and asked for permission to use this name. His response was "You don’t need my permission to do that Dan. Good luck with it". f. FYI - In no way is Forrest Fenn making any profit from these sales. Any and all profits are supporting Copper Elements, by Dan and Frances Hedblom.
