The Copper Art Piece Clock is a truly one of a kind piece. These clocks are made with 100% pure copper and undergoes a minimum 14 day patination process to achieve the colours and patterns you see. Our copper art piece clocks are then sealed with a clear lacquer to protect the delicate patina. Each art piece clock is made differently. Although we can aim to achieve a certain look or colour, each piece is unique.
With 4 individual hour markers, a silent quartz movement and attached hook for hanging, our clocks are ready to transform any space. We do not offer replication of these pieces, the clock you see is the clock you will receive.
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 piece that we create at Empire Copper is achieved using a forced patination on copper. Because of this, every piece is unique in its own way. This process guarantees that you will own a one of a kind piece, that nobody else in the world has.
