Ocean Fragment Copper Crystal Maquettes

Using a technique developed by Jason deCaires Taylor, this maquette has been patinated by a process of passing small electrical currents through a copper solution. Over time, copper crystals artificially grow on the surface of the works that are submerged in specially calibrated tanks at the UK Studio. Please be rest assured that there are no living organisms used in the production of these works. The process of mineral accretion using salvaged copper aims to recreate formations found on the oceanic installations and creates a level of detail that is impossible to create by human hand. When each piece is removed from the copper solution, the works are stable and hot / cold patinated like traditional metal finishes. Each unique maquette is then encapsulated in a crystal clear, high grade lucite resin, which has a textured surface to replicate the sea and subsequently refract light as witnessed underwater.
