Copper is valued for strength, malleability, ductility, and its ability to conduct electricity and heat. It is also non-magnetic, resists wear, and forms a green patina which makes it very resistant to corrosion.
I like to refer to my products as "ART WITH VALUE". My products are of "heirloom" quality and have "real value" above and beyond their artistic beauty.
On many older American barns, particularly German farms, one could see a large decoration in the shape of a star mounted on the face of the barn.
These were called barn stars. Sometimes they were just aesthetic, but sometimes they represented the trademark of a specific barn builder. Although they go back to at least the 1820s in Pennsylvania, they were most popular after the American Civil War.
