Upcycled from a Frank Lloyd Wright church, Scott Lecz of LeDanse uses antiqued copper roofing to create his one of a kind pieces. The forms for the Copper Silver Suite were cut from and inspired by the naturally painted copper roof of the architecturally historic Unitarian Meeting House in Madison, Wisconsin. In 1993 this architectural masterpiece was being re-roofed, the copper being trucked off for scrap. Scott was able to purchase large quantities of this material. Since then he has used the copper to create sculptural works as well as an ever evolving earring, pendant and men’s tie clip line. In addition to recycling the natural beauty of the painted copper, the material itself is historically and culturally significant. The copper forms are wrapped in sterling silver; most designs are adorned with pearls.A portion of all proceeds is donated to help house the homeless and foster hope for the future.
