Setup/Care

We recommend that you DON'T polish your copper pieces. Polishing will diminish the unique heat patina finish. Fine steel wool or a coarse-napped terry cloth can be used on the copper to restore its luster.

Product Usage

Copper is not recommended for food usage. You will need to line your copper tray with clear plastic or glass to keep the food from coming in contact with the copper. A simple solution is to use large lettuce leaves as a base.

Craftsmanship

Bonfire Copper is crafted using a centuries-old bonfire method. The copper is heated in a bonfire and then worked with hammers to create the designs. The flame, ash and soot from this process produces this rich chestnut heat patina finish. This bonfire method is chemical-free. No chemicals are used to achieve the patina. No molds are used. The artists use a pattern and individually craft each piece by hand, hammered from a single lump of copper.

We currently work with 7 different workshops that employ 1 to 7 artisans. Most of the people in the workshops are related, fathers, sons, uncles, cousins. Each workshop has its own style. One shop makes only small pieces, maximum 3" high, while another prefers to work in organic forms; pears, apples, gourds, squashes. Ramon's work is extremely fine with thin walls, while Antonio's work is thick-walled and monumental. Each piece is proudly signed by its creator.
