About The Artwork

Inspired by my love of nature and working with metals, this solid copper wall hanging includes waterlilies, waterlily flowers and a dragonfly. I love the contrast of the raw copper and the verdigris (the greenish patina that naturally develops on copper over time). The piece has two loops on the back for hanging and is suitable for indoor or outdoor display. All my work is hand cut from copper sheet and wire, linished, hand rolled and then hammered into shape. I then braze weld it together using an oxy/acetylene handpiece and finally brush with a special acid mix to develop the beautiful green patina which varies with every piece. All pieces have been sprayed with a metal protector to maintain the finish over time.

Leanne Hamilton-Kinnear draws inspiration from the natural world around her. Growing up in Adelaide, South Australia, Leanne has had a passion for art since a young child. Being the first daughter of a Blacksmith/Boilermaker/Mechanic father and Florist/Painter/Poet mother, Leanne learnt to weld as a teenager and loved spending time in her Dad's Workshop as well as helping her Mum in their extensive garden. Leanne works primarily with copper but also steel and recycled metals, making sculptural pieces and wall hangings for both indoors and outdoors, as well as custom water features. Leanne uses both Oxy-Acetylene welding and brazing as well as MIG and plasma cutting with most work hand cut and formed using traditional metalworking processes. As such each piece is always unique and individual. Her work is strongly grounded in nature with plants, flowers and animals all common themes. Popular works include gum leaves, water lilies, butterflies and dragonflies as well as poppies and orchids. Leanne moved to Auburn in 2017 for a breath of fresh air, following the death of both her parents and two of her four children in a tragic road accident in 2016. The property is now home to her Metalwork Business “Verdigris Metalwork” and includes her Gallery and Studio “Vee Squared”, open by appointment The name Verdigris Metalwork comes from the patina or ‘verdigris’ that develops on copper, forming the beautiful rich emerald green hues evident in her work
