Using a technique developed by Jason deCaires Taylor, the following copper coral series has been patinated by a process of passing small electrical currents through a submerged copper solution. Over time, copper crystals or “corals” start to form on the surface of the works. This process of mineral accretion aims to replicate the formations of the oceanic installations and creates a level of detail that is impossible to create by human hand. Once removed from the solution the works are stable and hot / cold patinated like traditional metal finishes.
