The copper shapes shown are all 18 gauge heavy duty copper shapes we sell. They do not come with your order. I just used them in the photos to show you items that The Diamond Trivets can hold.
By the way, I was recently asked why we only carry 18 gauge copper shapes. Many reasons really. One reason is that Joe Spencer sold 18 gauge shapes since 1970. He believed in having and selling good quality materials. He could have saved money by purchasing 20 or 24 gauge, however, you can’t do as many things with the thinner size materials as you can the nice thick heavy duty size of 18 gauge copper. You can roll your 18 gauge pieces threw a rolling mill to make larger. You can hammer out texture, shapes and designs. You can fold the 18 gauge copper and when you unfold some, it keeps its shape. You can use 18 gauge shapes in electroplating techniques. Its just like the old saying goes. You get what you pay for.
The Diamond Trivets were designed to hold the metal pieces in place, while firing your work in an electric kiln.
You could also use them for pottery pieces and pmc.
The Diamond Trivets are a very helpful tool for artist that work with small and odd shaped objects, which 3 prong and 4 prong trivets have difficultly holding in place.
The Diamond Trivets would make a great gift for your artist friends.
They nestle together for easy storage, and they are just a dog gone fun way to trivet up your items.
Hi, My husband Jim asked me to write up, a little something of why we now have another trivet. So here is all I can tell you.
My name is cheryl anne. Most of you know me as Jims wife and a good friend of Joseph Spencer.
Joe was my friend for a long time and we hung out several times a week, making enamel beads and tools.
I am an ordinary person who just happens to love working with enamel, glass and other cool stuff.
For several years now, I've been working with enamels and my kiln, using the 3 prong and 4 prong style trivets.
I always got frustrated while working with the 3 prong and 4 prong trivets while enameling my butterflies.
They just did not fit right and then worst of all my butterflies would fall off the trivets wasting my enamel.
My friends that know me, know that I don't like to waste anything. Ok, Pack Rat comes to mind. But hey enamels are not cheap.
I was so frustrated with this happening and I love butterflies, so I decided it was time to design a new type of trivet
which could hold my smaller, odd shaped copper pieces and butterflies in place.
It took me some time to figure things out, but I finally came up with this arrangement for a trivet.
I totally love my Diamond Trivets. I hope you will too !
Thank you for your support. Blessings to you, cheryl anne
