Copper Art…

I thought you might like to know about this—-

Dan and Frances Hedblom are searchers and also a husband and wife artistic team who work almost exclusively with copper, coaxing stunning textures and colors out of otherwise dullish plain brown sheets. The results are beautiful and appear in fine galleries across the country.

The Hedbloms work out of their studio in Minnesota. Much of their work is inspired by the dramatic north shore of Lake Superior. You can find out more about them and see stunning pieces they have created HERE.

In celebration of Forrest and The Thrill of the Chase the Hedbloms have created a limited edition piece called “Where Warm Waters Halt”.

There are only 80 of these individually hand crafted pieces. Each is 17inches tall and 8inches wide. Dan says that they wanted to capture the mountains, forests and streams of The Thrill of the Chase. In my opinion they have certainly done that. I think these are gorgeous. Each piece is signed and numbered on the back and comes with a certificate of authenticity. You can see more photos of this limited edition piece on their website HERE.

You can purchase one of these limited editions from their eBay store, which is HERE.

They are available for $100 plus $20 for shipping. Since there were only 80 made and I know they have already sold some…My guess is that they won’t have much trouble finding owners for the few remaining so if you’re looking for something beautiful, unusual and also about the Chase…you should probably order one quickly…
