The copper I am looking for can be in any quantity, any condition, missing parts, broken, it does not matter. Copper is one of the most important ingredients used in multi-media steampunk art.
Many home decor items are made of copper such as wall hangings, lamps, candle holders, vases & baskets, kitchen utensils, etc. There are many fasteners, safety pins, tacks, nails, screws that are also made of copper. Copper sheets, pipes, wiring and tubes are also wanted.
There are many clothing and accessory items that have copper buttons, fasteners, buckles, zippers and such. Jewelry, belts, shoes, purses, bags, hats, jackets, coats, pants just to name a few. These are also items I can recycle into art pieces.
Even metal parts and pieces that are not copper but look like copper or bronze will work. To tell the difference, true copper it not magnetic. all magnetic pieces will be other metals.
Donations are always appreciated, trades are always considered, and I will gladly pay the current scrap price for brass if necessary to get what I need to complete art projects.
If you have materials for me to recycle, PM me via Facebook
The art pieces created at the Spokane Steam Atomitorium will be featured HERE
