Combining forest-fire driftwood and lava stone, Scorched was designed to prompt thoughts that tremendous obstacles and challenges can be overcome; that strength is gained from difficult journeys.
Seven copper dragonflies supported on or suspended from three driftwood arms.
Stabilizing bob: Cut oval lava stone; lava stone accent beads.
Each piece of driftwood I use for my pieces is personally selected for its uniqueness, from the shores of the Ottawa River, meticulously cleaned and protected with a light coat of water-based, satin-sheen urethane to enhance the colour variations of each arm.
Designed for indoor or outdoor display. Gentle rains and light breezes only. Suggested locations include porches, enclosed patios, gazebos, sun rooms, solaria, conservatories, breezeways, spas, and bathrooms where shower steam will age the copper to a beautiful verdigris patina. Have you been debating what to do with that dormer window space? Light enough to suspend from a command hook to not damage your ceiling.
The speed at which the copper transforms in any location is dependent on the amount of moisture present.
Outdoors: 6 months to a deep bronze hue; 2-3 full years including winter to a green patina resembling that of roofs of Canada’s Parliament Buildings, Ottawa.
Indoors: New-penny look will gradually transform to a deep bronze hue over 3-4 years. Unless placed in a steamy environment, it will not transform to verdigris.
Size: 20” (51cm) at widest point; 24” (61cm) drop measured from top arm.
