This copper weathervane base was made for a client who salvaged this weathervane from a home they lost to fire. The weathervane was atop their garage and survived the fire and they wanted to prominently display it in their new home, as a memento of their old home.
The base is hand-formed from .080″ thick copper and a 1″ stainless steel through the center to accept the post. The piece was welded together using the Tungsten Inert Gas (T.I.G.) welding process and the patina was obtained by oxidizing the copper with a “special solution.” It measures 12″ in height, 12″ in depth and 12″ in width
Similar bases can be made to display other forms of art and they can be personalized with many effects, to include more details, different materials, different shapes and other adornments that you might want to make it special.
Bases can be designed for indoor or outdoor use.
