‘Copper in Black’ is a striking sculpture by contemporary artist Mark Beattie.
This original piece of art is made using painted and polished copper.
‘Copper in Black’ was created in early 2016. The piece is made from one continuous copper tube so there is no obvious start or finish.
“I start making the piece at the centre and bend the copper by hand until I am happy with the shape and form.” – Mark Beattie
The centre is polished copper, finished with a lacquer so it will stay shiny if it’s kept indoors.
