Copper was the first metal to be manipulated by humans. The Copper Age, named after the element, was the first phase of the Metal Age, a period of human history roughly 6,000 years ago which catalyzed the transition from prehistory to protohistory. 

In order to create these abstract forms, molten copper at 2200° F is poured over water-soaked straw. Due to the high temperature, the straw burns away as the water cools and solidifies the element into these unique shapes. Whether displayed as a showpiece on a bookshelf, décor upon a desk, or the centerpiece of a coffee table, these scientific sculptures are a one-of-a-kind conversation piece that is sure to catch the attention of anyone who comes across it.

Approximately 2 inches long
