Shingle cabinet has been clad with oxidized copper plates. Cladding that is not unlike tiles and shingles found in architecture or scales and feathers found in the natural world. I liked the practicality of these beautiful objects and wanted to reference them here.
The patina finish on copper takes place when a chemical reaction occurs on the metal’s surface while oxygen is present. It is a naturally occurring process found in most metals. Through experimentation I have tried to tame that process.
Shingle cabinet is made from veneered Huon pine with solid turned Huon legs and oxidized copper shingles.
It is 1200mm high, 480mm wide and with a depth of 400mm
