This is a really big copper vase. It will fit perfectly on your home accents if your place has high ceilings. Once the form was given this vase, the polished shiny texture is got applying an abrasive substance (metal wax) to the copper. This vase has a nice turquoise patina combined with shiny pronges all the way around it. This patina texture gives the vase a unique look that you will enjoy. We got this vase from the skilled coppersmiths from Santa Clara del Cobre, Mexico. What is amazing about this copper vase is that was made from one sheet of copper, raised with the artist hammer, there are no one welded joints, even at this size! Hammering the red-hot copper is an ancient technique the coppersmiths use, where no sophisticated tools are used, just the furnace to heat the copper and a hammer to give it the shape. No further copper polishing or maintenance required, clean it with a dry cotton cloth. The hammer footprint is very visible, specially on the shiny part. A unique gift for your loved ones or for yourself.
