Our natural copper coasters undergo a forced patination method to create the colours you see. Once patinated, your new set of coasters are then sealed with natural beeswax to protect the delicate patina.
The Empire Copper Natural Coasters are made from 100% copper and mango wood.
What is a patina you say?
A patina - or patination, is coppers defence against the elements.
As copper becomes exposed to certain temperatures, elements or chemicals, it will develop a layer of oxidation to protect itself. Through many years of practice, we've learnt to control how the copper reacts to this process and use it to create the colours you see here.
Each of our copper pieces is created using a forced patination on copper.
Because of this, every piece is unique in it's own way.
This process guarantees that you'll own something that nobody else in the world does.
These are available to have custom stamping per your request, please see our stamping option for details.
THE EXACT COLOUR AND PATTERN SHOWN IS INDICATIVE.
EACH OF OUR PIECES VARY, AS IS THE NATURE OF THIS ART.
