Copper Pencil Cup

Continuing my obsession with copper craft.  I made this pencil cup for my son on his 12th birthday.  Hand hammered, soldered, forced patina.  Exotic wood bottom. I then sanded it to show the raw copper and  sealed the patina with 3 coats of Everbrite.

I Love Copper!

I have been working with copper more and more.  Sometimes I need to take a break from the Opinels and try something different. I started heating and hammering and drilling beads and little pry bars. I call these Apocalyptic Dog tags.
