Chirp Up!

Captivated by copper's warm, autumnal color and its malleable qualities, Catherine Murphy and her team have transformed this ubiquitous metal—used to create American's smallest coinage, the penny—into one-of-a-kind artworks. Using a hammer, vise, anvil, and oxy-acetylene torch, they fold, forge, and anneal copper transforming it into a intricate interpretation of an oversized cricket. Propped on an extra tall garden stake, this charming critter will be easy to spot as it peeks over your yard or garden, greeting visitors with its enchanting, hand-crafted character. Handmade in North Carolina.

Eventually, she settled in North Carolina and started a career working with metal and helping to create impressive high-rise construction projects, but Catherine never lost her fascination with the natural world and she longed to fuse her passion for nature with her talent for metalworking. Her outlet for this irresistible desire came in the form of one, especially intriguing metal: copper. collection
