Arizona Copper Art Museum Part 2

After the room full of World War 1 trench art, we followed the copper footprints into other rooms where copper was celebrated as a design element.

I’ll admit to a fascination with pressed tin ceilings, but I love, love, love the copper ceilings. In Jerome, many were painted over, but here the honey glow of copper shown through.

Yes, please, although I really don’t want the job of polishing them:D

Of course, in some design elements, the copper is allowed to oxidize to this lovely green patina.

In addition there was a room completely devoted to copper used for religious art.

And, one of the things I learned was that music was burned onto a master copper record before the tunes were transferred onto vinyl.
