Welcome to Rob Harper Designs
Artist and educator, Rob Harper has been working with sheet copper for
over 30 years. He describes his efforts as "One Man One Hammer" as he shapes each of his metal sculptures by
hand. Unique patina applications make his copper sculptures stand out from the rest in his field. Copper, one of the oldest known metals manipulated by man, is still sought after for its
complex and diverse metal properties. Harper's metal sculptures
are designed to last and be enjoyed by generations. These sophisticated metal designs are the perfect,
timeless choice for home or office.
While each piece of copperwork is truly one of a kind due to variation
in size, shape and patinas, there are tried and true forms that keep reappearing. For
that special site requiring an impact piece, Harper does requests. A dialogue
with clients is an important part of the selection, design and installation process. There is great satisfaction in an
installation completed with everyone totally happy with their final choices.
The art of being creative often begins with a project. People having unusual spaces
to fill is where Harper shines. "I like the challenge of working outside the box. With new
challenges you find new ideas."
