Sculptured Copper - 18pc flat
Sculptured Copper comes in a boxed flat of 18 pieces. The sculptured copper can range from 2 1/4" to 3" in size. Photos are representative only. Each piece is unique.
Native copper is used to form these interesting sculptures. Molten copper at 2200° F is pured into water soaked straw. The straw forms the shape, the burns away, and the copper forms solidify in the cool water.
Old customs of the early miners indicate that lead was used in the above process. Fortune telling was a New Year's Day pastime; good or bad luck was determined by the shape and size of the sculpture. Following the old traditions, this sculptured copper has been proudly manufactured in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula.
