Copper is such an awesome element especially because it's atomic number is 29, my birthday! It's great for conducting heat or electricity and it's so soft and malleable. My favorite thing about copper though is when it corrodes or gets heated up, it turns amazing colors with on a sort of patina look.
I purchased this copper coil for the photo tonight thinking I could just return it to Home Depot when I am done. But now, I feel a creative project coming on. I have never worked with copper but what's the worst that can happen, eh?
