Welcome to the Copper Phoenix Art website
I began teaching myself to work in copper in 2004, and I have been working away with it since. A lot of artwork was initially made from my own interests and then a lot of work was made to help people bring their ideas to life... some were and are a combination of the two. I think art made individually is never done alone since it is inspired by so many other things, ideas and other peoples work. Often art is an individual process as much as it is symbiotic one, or both, and certainly it is always meant to be shared and appreciated by others however it is created.
The purpose of my art is to bring a little oasis from the Az. desert here to where ever a fountain or art may go... They are all handmade and unique unto themselves. The copperfountain.com has 18 different sections of distinct copper artwork and information.
Copper is my primary medium of choice. It is an amazing material and element, as it does not rust, is both malleable and durable, highly conducive to color, heat and electricity, with antimicrobial properties, versitile, abundant, replicable, and last but not least the first metal humankind ever learned to harness and wield... And that is before even mentioning that it is very fun to work with!
I focus on copper fountains, wall art, sculpture and a variety of interior and exterior decor and more...
My goal as an artist, is to offer and create high quality art which enhances your space, and brings enjoyment and relaxation to you and others.
Thank You for taking the time to review my work. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you.
Right now in July, 2021 the website is under development.
Please see item details for more info as shipping and timing can vary as inventory varies.
Unless I am very busy most items can be made and ready to ship in about a week. I am often in the process of making of the small and medium table fountains and other art and decorative parts, but some other designs with much longer shipping durations take more time to make (often having to be made totally from scratch) and so are set further back in time for finishing and sending. Whatever the order may be I always make the effort to have them done as soon as possible.
If a special date or time is needed for your order, please let me know so I can try to prioritize it for you, and/or try accommodate your needs as best as can be attempted to do.
