Real mermaids smoke seaweed. And what do they smoke from? THIS
This unique piece was hand sculpted from clay and embellished with a sparkling Quartz Crystal, a real star fish, sculpted coral and seaweed, a magical seahorse, and a rainbow shifting mermaid heart.
After hours of sculpting, this piece was then coated with thick, luscious copper.
I oxidized this beaut to a dark, romantic finish.
Copper will continue to darken and change, depending on the oxygen and moisture in its surrounding environment. It will start to grow its own natural patina, sometimes blue and green, like a shipwreck. The rate and colors will depend on its new environment (humidity, salty air, etc). Copper can easily be polished and cleaned up with a brass brush, although it will remove the colorful patina I've added. I recommend cleaning only with warm soapy water, pat dry.
THIS IS AN ELECTROFORMED SCULPTURE OVER A GLASS TOBACCO PIPE - One of a kind smokable art
Copper is found naturally in our bodies. Its not only beautiful, changing colors over time as it oxidizes, but metaphysically healing and restoring to our bodies.
Each electroformed piece takes weeks to complete, from start to finish. I sculpt out my design over glass and Electroform each pipe for a couple of days, minimum, sometimes longer depending on the thickness and texture I want. This isn't just a light coating of copper. It's thick. Luscious. Strong and durable. It's a living piece of art.
