Kopper Kreations Pipe Flower Vase Marbled Effect


This is another Crafty favourite from Kopper Kreations. Introducing their new range of copper flower/bud vases. Each vase is made from a piece of recycled copper and glass test tubes that are salvaged from an old medical laboratory. Making these pieces 100% recycled!

Marbled Copper:
The copper has been heat treated with a blow torch to a very specific point where this beautiful marbling effect becomes apparent. It is then quenched to lock in this beautiful marbled finish. Due to the process each piece comes out with a totally unique finish.

Made using recycled 22mm copper pipe and recycled laboratory grade borosilicate glass test tube. As it is handmade the dimensions may vary slightly but never more than a few mm! Each test tube comes with a natural cork stopper also.

All test tubes are 20mm diameter
Small: 100mm high
Medium: 125mm high
Large: 150mm high

Care Instructions
All materials used are 100% recycled or salvaged. The material is polished to a natural finish by hand first and the required finishes are then created. They are designed to age over time.

Over time copper naturally changes colour. Transforming from a shiny brown/red colour to darker browns, then blues and finally greens after a number of years. When exposed to the natural elements copper develops this ‘patina’ which actually protects and preserves the metal underneath.

If you wish to clean the plain copper, we recommend some very fine wire wool or some P1000 or higher silicone carbide sandpaper both of which can be picked up from your local hardware shop. We do not recommend any cleaning for the marbled and patina copper finishes.
