Acid Patina… Transmuting Metal into Art! 

Patinated Copper & Brass Furniture

Custom designed metal furniture

Page Contents

♦ Introduction
♦ Patchwork Patinated Pedestal
♦ Black Brass Pedestal

Acid Patina had a busy 2017 developing a brand new product line; copper & brass furniture. Currently limited to pedestals, occasional tables or consoles. They provide a very unique feature for your home, boardroom, restaurant, reception foyer…

Every piece is handmade and features decorative panels made from copper or brass. Typically, these are fixed with copper rivets to a metal frame which provide an extra design element and texture to the piece. A clear lacquer provides a durable finish.
Numerous design and patina options ensure that each piece is a truly unique one-off item of furniture.

I can also work closely with you or your designer to develop other furniture ideas you may have for a specific project.
Email your ideas and lets see what can be created.

Patchwork Patinated Pedestal

A sculpture to display your sculpture!

Entirely handmade from solid copper and brass sheet metal. 143 individual hand-cut copper & brass ‘shingles’ are fixed with over 180 solid copper rivets.

Solid copper tube provides the underlying structural frame.

All colours are produced by hand-applied traditional acid patina techniques. No paints have been used.

The wide range of colours seen on this unique piece of furniture are produced by using different chemical solutions on both brass and copper. Each combination will provide a different patina colour.

The copper and brass ‘shingles’ have been hand-cut and worked in a relaxed manner; each has been cut to a slightly different size and shape. This produces a soft, Arts & Crafts æsthetic.

Great as a pedestal table to display a small sculpture. Or install as a unique feature piece in your home or business.

Finished with a clear lacquer.

780 x 310 x 310 mm (about 30½″ x 12¼” x 12¼”). About 12.4 kg (27 lb).

Buy direct price NZ$3200 (circa US$2220).

Black Brass Pedestal

Entirely handmade from solid brass sheet metal. 232 individual hand-cut brass ‘shingles’ are fixed with over 480 solid copper rivets.
A frame made from solid brass provides the underlying structural frame.

The sizes and spacing of the brass ‘shingles’ has been determined using sacred geometry and the Fibonacci number series. This provides for interesting and harmonious patterns to be produced by the shingles and rivets.

All colours are produced by hand-applied traditional acid patina techniques. No paints have been used.
The edges of each brass shingle have been polished to remove the black patina, producing a fine polished-brass edge detail.

Patinas reflect light very differently to paints! Being formed of metal, patinas possess the ability to produce a range of interference type colours. With this piece of art-furniture, the observed colours will subtly change from bronzes to blacks, depending on the lighting and viewing angle.
I consider the top to be one of the most beautiful patinas I have produced in over 20 years.

Great as a pedestal table to display a small sculpture. Or install as a unique feature piece in your home or business.

Finished with a clear lacquer.

750 x 320 x 320 mm (about 29½″ x 12½” x 12½”). About 13.2 kg (29 lb).

Buy direct price NZ$4000 (circa US$2775).
