Copper sea turtle sculpture


Recommended Posts

Just finished these copper sea turtles from copper. The first one is kind of a prototype and did a little patina on it. Both of these are made from some 3" Type "L" scrap copper I had laying around. The coral in the sculpture is made from sheet copper. The turtles were annealed and then hammered back to get the metal hard again. The granite river block weighs about 75LBS. Even though the patina on the sea turtle is more realistic of how this creature looks, I like the solid copper look better. 

Both turtles are just over 11" in length and 7" across.
