Several options are offered for those who are interested in a modern yet time tested metal finish. Such Hawaii Island Chains are created using modern materials which are manufactured in the USA and the end result is a bonded metal piece which boasts the benefits of a solid cast sculpture–without the weight, cost, or otherwise the burden of such an undertaking. The surface is approximately 90% metal on the face and edges of the island; the backs of the islands are black, and an entire 68″ size island chain weighs under 12 pounds.
Metal finishes are in Copper, Bronze, Aluminum, & Iron–with additional available on request.

As with most artwork handmade there will be some variances in color, texture, and shine.
However, as one may notice there are numerous photos online of the island chains, and of course–the artist is more than willing to provide photos, and even material samples on request if desired. Such variances result from the hand mixing of the composite material, the source of the raw materials, the amount of polishing each island receives, and how the patina is applied/removed if such an option is selected.
