My name is Chris O'Regan and I am a metalsmith working in the Celtic tradition.
This original work is inspired by traditional Celtic design,and is titled "Wolves".
It was influenced by a detail from the Book of Kells, an 9th Century Irish manuscript.
Liber Genertionis page (folio 29r), Gospel of Matthew.
The Wolf is a common theme in Celtic artwork,it represents determination,family and wisdom.
This piece is handcrafted,individually
etched and patinated (chemically coloured)
by myself and so each work is unique.
A resist is applied of the pattern to the copper,so when it is etched in acid,a bottom layer is eaten away and a top layer is left where no copper is dissolved.
The piece is then dipped into a chemical liquid that turns it entirely black, permanently.
It is sanded with sandpaper stripping the patination off the top layer revealing the copper but leaving it black on the lower surface.
The copper is finished with a clear acrylic spray on to protect the work.
Supplied with an adjustable roped polyester cord (NZ made)
Comes with a card with a description of the work and how it is made.
Made from recycled copper where possible.
Size 50 mm (2 inches) across
