Listing Detail Tabs

My name is Chris O'Regan and I am a metal smith working in the Celtic tradition. The High Cross is found throughout the Celtic Nations and is exclusive to these lands.
It’s uniqueness is found in the circle that surrounds the Cross and the geometrical patterns that lie within this circle.
The Cross incorporates ancient patterns used prior to the arrival of Christianity.
The symmetry found in this work shows a fine detail and a simple elegance.
Each piece is hand-crafted,etched and patinated by myself and 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 dipped in a chemical liquid that turns it complety black.It is then sanded stripping the patination off the top layer revealing the copper but leaving the 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) 210 mm x 150 mm
