Copper Mirror

Completely made of Copper, it is handcrafted with the old technique of oxidation of copper called Patination where the upper layer of the metal chemically reacts to the oxygen present in the atmosphere and changes it’s colour to a brownish-green to form a thin surface layer. Italians began using “patina” in the 17th century to refer to the green film that is produced on the surface of copper. They borrowed the word from Latin, where is means “a shallow dish”. The copper sheets used are chemically treated to create the patina and then coated with a sealer to prevent it from further oxidation.
