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.
It is then sealed with an acrylic spray,glued to paper card with a textured surface resembling parchment and framed in a dark stained wood.
Supplied with a card describing the work and how it is made.
Size(of copper) 90 mm
Size(of frame) 230 mm x 180 mm
Comes ready to hang or stand by itself.
