Single Panel Wallpieces

For smaller spaces and smaller budgets than our one-of-a-kind constructed wallpieces, we make several styles of single-panel wallpieces. They allow us to experiment with patinas and with other techniques, and to create simpler pieces on a smaller scale. We try to keep a few of each style available at any given time; normally, any you see on this page will be available, but please contact us to check.

Scrap Wallpieces

When making wallpiece parts out of small pieces of brass scrap, corners of the sheet of assembled scrap are cut out (to enable the part to be folded into a pan) and discarded. Those 'scrap scraps' which have inherent visual interest are kept, and some are incorporated into scrap wallpieces. The scrap part is mounted on screws and attached to the front of a single patinaed wallpiece pan. The scrap is sometimes patinaed a contrasting color from its back piece; other times it is flame-oxidized or polished. Some of the scrap wallpieces are made to hang in any direction, but often the pans were not originally built with this in mind, so some only have one or two orientations in which they can easily be hung.

Small Face Wallpieces

Since 2006, David has been making repoussé faces in copper. Most of these are larger, and incorporated into our constructed wallpieces, but some are made small, and placed on small single panels, in the manner of scrap wallpieces (above). Every face is made freehand, and is therefore unique.

Collision Wallpieces

In April 2008 we started making a new, collaborative style of single-panel wallpieces, which are formed by one of us heating the surface of the large panel while the other tears the surface open with cold chisels and hammers. The rip is expanded and adjusted until it fits the smaller piece, with the appearance of the smaller piece colliding with and bursting through the larger.
