Hand-wrought book pins in brass and flame-colored copper. Books are shaped one at a time with hand tools using the technique known as foldforming. The color of the copper pages is a natural effect of heating the copper. No two will ever be alike. Pin backs are made of nickel. "Text" is hand-scribed, but does not say anything as far as the author is aware. 

Measures approximately 1.25 x 1"

Each pin is unique to itself and may vary from photo.

Handmade by David and Reed Bowman in Berkley, California.

David M Bowman Studio consists of two people: David Mills Bowman and his son, Reed Christopher Bowman. David began working in metal in 1971, near the time Reed was born; he first made silver jewelry, later moved on to brass belt buckles, then to larger pieces in patinaed brass. Over the years David has worked alone or with different assistants, but he has worked exclusively with Reed since the mid-1990s. They sell their work at fine retail galleries around the country.
