A gleaming copper starfish is slightly raised against a speckled copper patina background. It normally takes 30 years or more for copper to achieve the green color most recognized as a patina, but in the artist's controlled studio the color comes to life in a fraction of the time through the application of various chemicals. Once the perfect sea-inspired color is achieved, the artist immediately halts the oxidation process and applies a protective finish that will preserve the color for years to come. No special care required. Diameter is 3 inches. Makes a wonderful hostess gift.
