Item details



copper, satin ribbon

A decoration etched with one of my own digital collages, showing Father Christmas with his reindeer and sleigh, flying swiftly past the moon. The design is framed by the last line from the 1823 poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas".

I have another, similar decoration available, the only difference being the border text is black on copper, rather than the copper on black you see in this one.

The reverse side of is etched with the full moon, Father Christmas with reindeer and sleigh and my 2018 signature.

This piece was made entirely by hand, including the filing of the shape, the etching process, the drilling, weathering, ageing, oxidising and polishing. Note that the weathering/ageing process includes creating and retaining some scratches on the finish of the piece.

A final coat of sealant was added to prevent the weathering and oxidation from wearing away.

7.6cm (approximately 3") in diameter.

Made from an etched copper disc, complete with copper jump ring and ready to hang from the supplied red satin ribbon.
