Ayrshire finish – with specs of verdigris
Named after hikes on the beautiful Scottish island of Arran, Ayrshire combines the rustic tones of natural copper with delicate speckles of blue-green verdigris.
Verdigris is the patina that appears over time on certain metals when they’re exposed to the elements; think of the colour of the Statue of Liberty. We speed up the ageing process to create this reaction, giving your piece a delicate, vintage look.
We age natural copper by hand until we achieve exactly the level of pattern you want, then seal with a gloss or matte finish.
Ayrshire looks wonderful in a variety of settings; some of our favourites are kitchen splashbacks, cabinetry and countertops.

What are the largest sizes that can be made?
Our largest sheet is 2000x1000. Any larger pieces required will need to be produced in multiple sheets. We will age the pieces together to minimise the visibility of the join as much as possible. eg:
- 2800mmx900mm would need to be ordered and supplied in 2 1400mmx900mm
- 2800mmx1200mm would need to ordered and supplied in 4 1400mmx600mm
