Acid Patina doors will provide you with a truly unique and stunning entrance to your home, business, boardroom… These doors will always exude a real solid presence and present a stunning feature to ‘wow!’ your guests and visitors.

All doors are custom-designed and handmade to order using real solid copper and brass sheet. An almost unlimited range of design options is possible!

The ‘traditional’ blue/green/bronze patinas lend themselves admirably to projects that have a natural, aged or marine themed design. Alternatively, selecting a black, red or other ‘new’ patina from the range can provide a very modern æsthetic.
Corporate logos and graphic designs can be incorporated into the design as part of the metalwork or patina colours.
The use of decorative copper nails and rivets can provide an additional design feature.
I work closely with you, your architect or designer to achieve the design intent at an acceptable price. Cost effective options are available for shipping worldwide.

Send me an email with your requirements and I will provide you with a free design & estimate.
Below is a selection of patinated copper doors I have made over the years.
