Cam Wilson of All Fours creates uniquely embossed patina copper albums.

Patina is the process of using a torch to produce a film on the metal through oxidation, which creates a weathered look.

His copper albums are warm and industrial, and one can sense the craftsmanship and love that goes into them. Wilson loves working with and forming metal, especially copper.

The process of using a torch is frustrating, he says, but it is the most rewarding part of his work. He loves the depth and painterly quality that develops from it. But by far the best part of his job is that he can spend every day working in the studio with his dogs.

Wilson was born in Palo Alto, CA, but has lived in San Francisco for the last 26 years. He splits his work between a ranch in Santa Rosa, where he does the torch work, and the three levels of a crumbling San Francisco Victorian in the lower Haight district where the assembly takes place.

He has a BA in Video Art from the California College of Art in Oakland, CA, and says if he weren't an artist he would be a video engineer.

Some of his first works were large metal sculptures made of old Cadillacs--but his current work developed after working with a jeweler and practicing with those types of tools and materials.

Wilson began using salvaged metal from a scrap yard, but now buys copper by the half-ton from a distributor. He uses recycled motorcycle inner tubes for the hinges.

        Comments about Copper Recipe Journal:

        You can't tell from the picture, but the word "Recipes" on the cover is banged out from the back, adding a nice old-fashioned effect. The copper cover is very fitting for the fact that it's a recipe book. The pages are an off-white color and made of thick paper, as described. I'm very happy with this purchase

          I bought this as a 7th anniversary gift for my husband who is a Chef. He is always writing down recipes on slips of paper and losing them. This book is perfect as it is sturdy and well made. Wish I had one for home to glue in all those recipes I cut out of magazines!

            I gave this to my boyfriend for Christmas and wrote in all the recipes he had floating around loose in his junk drawer. He loves to cook and had been lamenting about not being able to find particular recipes. He loved it! And I loved it when I saw it--the cover is gorgeous, and the paper is nice and heavy. An excellent gift for great cooks everywhere!

              Bought this for my brother who is a chef- he plans to use it for his favorite recipes. The product is sturdy, unique, artistic, and the inside paper is of good stock, thick enough so nothing will tear out easily (or if little spills get on the paper, no big deal!).

              I bought this product for my boyfriend who is a chef as a gift. He is always looking for things that are unique and this fit him perfectly and he loved it and even put it on display in our kitchen! It is a great place for him to write down all of his ideas in a recipe book that isn't geared twoard house wive's. I love this product and I love this site I look forward to buying more products from them in the future!
