Dan and Frances Hedblom
Copper Elements was started by Dan and Frances Hedblom of Rochester, MN in the summer of 2010. In July of 2010, a gift was shown to the Hedblom's that would change their lives forever. Dan’s parents had discovered a technique of bringing out beautiful colors in copper using a torch. This technique was shared with them to enjoy and carry on.
The artwork is designed by both Frances and Dan and takes many months of planning to come up with. Frances, with no prior experience with a torch, has found she has a true talent in bringing out and blending the colors in the copper. Dan builds the solid wood frames and does the grinding and buffing process which enhances the colors when displayed in light.
