Beautiful as usual. Thanks for notifying me of your new project.
Do you make the bronze or copper faces?

I have to echo the beautiful as usual. Is the copper hollow in back or do you have
some kind of backing like a wooden dome? Also what gauge copper do you use. I
have a lot of leftovers from various projects.

Thanks for the compliments. The design is not mine. It was done by the Greene & Greene brothers. The face is mine though.
