Announcement   Self – taught copper artist, Al De La Vega, pounds his metal like he pounded his beat as a New York City policeman. It is a rhythym like no other. His varied pieces are handcrafted from copper and brass and are enhanced with various patina's creating 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.”

Thanks for stopping by my shop ....

The recipient of this copperwhimseasbyal piece was over-joyed... It was a birthday gift from me to him. My friend is an avid art collector but had never seen anything quite like this shark with an overbite...thus I received cool points. Al shipped it lightning fast. I met him personally at a Fishery Village art market in Placida and he has so many beautiful pieces not represented on Etsy. He is as talented as he is nice and his sense of humor is reflected in his art.
