Here at AJ's Copper Garden the goal is to achieve the highest level of quality and detail. I design the sculptures with copper, brass, and stainless steel and use acids to bring out the natural copper patinas. Most pieces are painted with custom automotive lacquers, and to finish the process everything receives a double wet coat of poly-urethane and then it's baked in an oven it to protect and preserve the finishes.
Here on the homepage you can see a few photos of the work I do. Above is a Copper Lily, but I make a wide variety of Flowers and Critters, . To the right is the Blue Heron Family. These sculptures also range in size from 3ft up to 8 ft tall! They are standing in front of the copper cattails. They are all separate pieces to be used and placed, to best accent your home, all the pieces I make are made to be outside and stay looking great for years!
To the left is a Frog Prince. The Frogs come in a variety of sizes, colors and extras. Some may have crowns and scepters, some may have super-frog capes, or even musical instruments.
At present, my web site is still under construction. I am making an effort to present you with an entire spectrum of offers as soon as possible. At this point I can provide you with information regarding my contact information, show dates and locations and give a glimpse of what I do here at AJ's Copper Garden. My goal is to reach out to new friends in areas outside of where I usually present my work. This web-site is a great tool to keep us in touch with new and current friends of the Copper Garden.
If you are not familiar with my work and your first contact with us is online: I would be pleased to hear from you! Please let me know what your needs and questions are, I will be more than happy to help.
