Tree of Life suncatcher, garden art, made from entirely recycled products.
The copper wire wrapped tree is made using reclaimed bare copper electrical cable and the disc is a yellow to orange graduated tint spectacle lens. The full size optician lens didn’t pass the muster for being made into spectacles, and so I repurposed it into these charming suncatcher rather than it being put through the recycling process, much more eco-friendly. Once the wrapping is complete I oxidize the copper with liver of sulphur to add patina and hand polish with wire wool and polishing cloth.
Copper loop at the top ready to hang in your garden.
The lenses used in my suncatchers have been checked to make sure they are farsighted (negative, diverging) lenses, which means that they dissipate the light rather than concentrate it (like reading glasses) therefore they would not cause a hot beam of light that could start a fire.
