Copper Japanese Maple Leaf Ornament
This copper leaf ornament has been imprinted with a real japanese maple leaf. After I imprinted the leaf into copper, I hand cut the leaf's edges, and hand formed the leaf to give it a lifelike appearance. I then hand finished it, giving it an oxidized patina to highlight the delicate veins of the leaf. The stem has been formed into a decorative loop for hanging. This leaf is life-size and measures approximately 2-1/2" x 2-3/4".
