Announcement    Professional Copper Artist, Al De La Vega, has a passion for creativity. His varied pieces are handcrafted from copper and brass and are enhanced with various patinas. He creates one of a kind hues in unique designs. He shapes, bends, curves and tints the copper to conform to his
mental picture images. The finishes are worked and formed over time, like fine wine becoming more beautiful with age. He finds the finish is the essential component to every piece he creates.

He specializes in Florida sea life and whimsical creatures that he creates from his mind which is filled with a huge sense of humor. He dabbles in some abstract and art pieces for variety. When asked by a newspaper writer once why he creates such funny creatures he quipped, “ Life is too serious. If I can make someone smile with my work then I have accomplished what I have set out to do.”

    It either gets laughs or screams. Bought it for the daughter but now thinking about keeping it for myself.

    These are so awesome! I asked the artist to do the couple in silver which he did. They are beautiful and look perfect in the master bathroom, though I suspect they will bring laughter from the grandchildren!

    I love my naked people! There were some shipping problems, but Al made everything right. I still have my eye on the ‘lil crabs, the ones with the red claws...so I’ll be back!
