Thiele Art

Constructed entirely of copper, these items shown on this web site, are created by hand, one at a time by metal artist Karl Thiele. Even the base and shade are hand-spun from copper sheets. The patina is genuine oxidation controlled by the artist and stopped at the point of maximum effect. The piece is then spayed with a clear finish to lock the natural color forever. 

Karl Thiele's fascination with metal began at an early age in his grandfather's blacksmith shop on the Umpqua river in Oregon. 

Three years at the University of Oregon School of Architecture broadened this interest, and in 1972 he opened  a studio on the Oregon coast specializing in leaded glass shades. 

Working today at his home-studio in Freeland on Whidbey Island, Washington, he continues a long tradition of excellent functional art. His art work can be viewed at the following location, in Parkland, Washington. See linked map.
