Do you make/sell other products that aren't sold at Worcester Wares? If so, tell us about what you make.

I like creating different colors by heating copper to different temperatures.

If you could give advice to someone thinking about pursuing your type of craft what would you tell them?

Be extremely aware of your surroundings when heating the copper.
