This etched copper pendant has a leaping hare bounding across a patterned hillside. A heat coloured copper pendant that has a vintage style art nouveau inspired design which has been etched by myself using environmentally friendly processes and heat treated to create a vibrant multicoloured patina: this will deepen over time.
The hare is associated with a number of myths from many different cultures. The Algonquin tribe honored the Great Hare as a role in the creation of the world. The Egyptians saw the hare as a symbol of hare procreation and immorality. The Goths, saw the hare as fleet and swift, and symbols of diligence.
'Hare people are considered sensitive and artistic, and also linked with ambition, fitness, and virtue.'
About heat colouring copper: A high temperature oxygen and propane torch is used at different temperatures to create different colours. I have developed a technique of literally 'painting' with a flame to manipulate the shape and direction of the colours. Although there is a degree of control, each piece is unique, as the colour patina cannot be replicated exactly. suspended on a 16" brass chain.
