It is so difficult to photograph these pieces sometimes!  I’ve added some detail photos here so you get the whole picture, so to speak.  The background is a vinegar/salt patina.  The piece is mounted on a black suede mat and then framed with a beautiful wood/gold frame.  The piece is not as orange-y as it looks in this photo.

Before it was finished… you can see the patina starting to take.  It ended up with more red tones than this photo.

    Good Morning Ms Keller,

    I am in the process of remodeling my kitchen. I have a large piece of copper 0.25 36″ by 10′ to make my own back splash. I have fallen in love with your work. If I supplied the copper and gave you the left over would it be possible for you to do the back splashes. I think it is going to be two L corners of 22×44 and 15″ tall two smaller panels about 24 x 15 and 22 x 15. Please let me know ball park prices and if you are interested and how much time you would need to complete. I was looking t the paperwhites or Tritych sun flowers. Mary 303-253-0622 Thanks in advance for your time.

    Hello!

    Great talent! I want to build my kid’s a hope chest out of the wood of an old flour mill that sits on our property. I would like to incorporate hammered metal on these hope chests. Will you be teaching a metal working class in late summer? Early fall? Or would you somehow be able to recommend a good instructional metal working how to booK? Where did you learn this art? I also want to make metal Christmas ornaments with small rivets etc

    Thanks and enjoy the upcoming week!

    • Kim Keller says:

      Hi Sheela,
      No, I don’t teach classes….I’m not sure I can be of much help as I am self taught. Trial and error – I just started by happenstance, looking through a magazine and saw a photo of machine stamped metal art. It reminded me of a junior high project in which they gave us copper and we embossed and then enameled it. Started web-searching copper and when it arrived I just dug in. Learned a lot along the way. I really think each artist should learn on their own – mistakes make the best insights and its best to ‘own’ your own journey.

    Hi:

    I love your work but would like some prices……………..where do I find those?

  6. Deb Lane says:

    Hi Kim,

    I just saw the grapes and autumn leaves backsplash that you just sent to Linda in North Carolina! It is stunning. I have two glass doors over my stove for which I am considering other options. I do not have the actual sizes with me at work, but could you provide a basic price list of your work. There may be other ideas that I would like to pursue as well.

    Thanks!

  7. Roberta Wykoff says:

    Hi Kim,
    I received your red tulips piece as a gift and absolutely love it. We just added on a sun room and I’ve hung it out there. The colors look awesome! Do you have another piece that is approximately the same size (17 x 17 black frame) that would compliment the tulips? I want to bring out the red as an accent since the room is very neutral.. Please let me know. The tulips were purchased in Grove City. Thanks!
