A State of Copper

A State of Copper

At Canvas and Paddle we are proud to partner with A State of Copper, handmade originals honoring our Great State and Great Lakes. The artwork is made on heavy gauge metal and framed in barn wood frames and each one is unique!

The process in which to create a piece consists of 42 steps including various natural acids being combined and a crystal clear resin application once the desired look is achieved. This halts the possibility of further oxidation and protects the artwork for life. 

A State of Copper has added beautiful copper coasters to their collection. These coasters feature Michigan, the Great Lakes, the Upper Peninsula and the Mackinac Bridge. They are bold and bright, perfectly in line, representing Michigan! They make the perfect gift or addition to your home. 

A State of Copper is a wonderful representation of Michigan pride! We hope that next time you are in Canvas & Paddle, that you will pick up one of these gorgeous handmade pieces to take home with you.
