    Stuff I do

    I mainly work in copper. The ladle is about 3 inches across. The handle is scrap wire I got from my nephew who works at a mill.

    Cool How did you fasten the wire handle to the Ladle ? silver solder or such braze is a bit hard (higher MP than copper )

          Made a bowl for the ladle. Now just figure out how to wrap it without my wife noticing it gone. Click image for larger version

                I got started with copper when I needed a gift for a Chief in Canada. Traditional the copper showed great wealth, so a great chief would have a copper shield. I ended up making him a "copper" to honor him and show him who I am.

                It kinda grew from there when I found a supply I could buy in bulk. I just love the feel of it.
