Paul & Elena Jones
8 x 6" / Copper and Wood
The terms embossing/chasing and repousse refer to the shaping and hammering of metal. Embossing and chasing is the process by which we hammer the front-side of the metal to create unique textures and patterns. Repousse is when we flip the piece over and push the metal outwards, creating a relief. This piece was made using hammers and other small (3-5 mm) tools to develop an image. After the metal is shaped, we add chemical and dye patinas for vibrant color.
The Boreal Owl is a very small animal, and its inquisitive face in particular caught our eye. They are known to be very antisocial but attentive and curious. We love to highlight the unique characteristics of each animal in this series and connect them to our human emotions.
