Copper Quilt: An American Sampler

By Jennifer
This piece is an homage to the traditional fabric handycrafts in America.  It is entirely made of copper.  Each square was made using a variety of metalwork and wirework techniques .  Other enhancements are torchfire, ink, and acrylic. The center square is a traditional quilting pattern called a Log Cabin design. I used several gauges of sheet copper and copper wire for this piece.
