Day 7

Have you ever tried to emboss copper?

Using wooden tools so as not to scratch, you squeeze the metal into the shape you are after - or for me I discovered the pattern as I went on!

I was recently introduced to the craft by a lovely tutor whose passion for it is infectious.

This piece is full of contrasts.

The light and dark.

The ups and downs.

The curve and the point.

The smooth and the sharp.

Like life really. Except that life often feels harder to squeeze into shape.
