Copper Italy wall sculpture

This was such an enjoyable project! I was asked to create a copper relief map of Italy and its islands. This piece is made from copper sheet with a Rojo finish. The terrain of Italy was embossed by hand. Once finished, the copper sheet was attached to a backing board for rigidity. Plus, this added extra depth to the wall hanging. The sculpture is approx. 36 inches tall by 20 inches wide. Thank you, Barbara!

I used assorted wooden clay tools to press the mountains and hills into the copper.
