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.
