Copper Eyed Susan

This piece of art won Member's Choice award in the art exhibit FOTM: Black-Eyed Susan

Art: Copper Eyed Susan by Artist Robin Cruz McGee
This is My version of the Black Eyed Susan done in repousse. With this ancient technique I have taken a flat sheet of metal and, with the help of punches, hammers and a pitch bowl, I have stretched and distorted the copper sheet into a three dimensional form. I used 18 gauge metal and have about 5 working days time in the piece. It helped to have a supply of wild Black Eyed Susans growing across the street. Repousse is a rare and labor intensive art. I hope you enjoy my work.
