Tall Espresso Pendulum Clock
Created by Linda Lamore
Each clock is individually hand painted with a palate knife. The oil paint is directly applied onto the flamed and sealed copper. Prior to painting, the copper is given a brush finish and is heat treated. It is this high heat that gives the copper a warm caramel color and makes it very stable, which reduces its susceptibility to patina. The copper is then sealed with linseed oil before it is painted. The copper floats above the black powder coated aluminum creating a multilayered surface.
