Created on a lightweight, yet sturdy, handmade substrate, this artwork features layers of copper metal coating that has been oxidized using an acidic solution to create a real metallic patina. The patina has been carefully sealed, providing stability of color over time. The circular design features a variety of stones and minerals, native to the American Southwest. The 3 small squares are handmade tesserae, carefully created using the same technique as the main substrate.
