Luke Marshall, a lifelong metalsmith, is the sole proprietor of Delta Copper of Rome, NY. Luke has over 20 years of professional experience in arts and crafts, lighting, and metalwork, beginning by crafting sterling silver jewelry and metal sculpture at the young age of 13. Luke specializes in copper lighting; and is highly skilled in period reproductions, custom pieces made to order, and his own original artwork which has graced private collections across the globe.
Luke’s turn of the century designs are crafted with traditional methods, tools, and materials.Each item is annealed and formed with successive rounds of hammering, sometimes with dozens of repetitions until the desired shape is achieved. The formed copper is then planished to achieve the uniform hammered surface characteristic of arts and crafts metalwork. The final results are truly heirloom quality, works of art without compromise which many attest to be the highest quality available from a contemporary artist.
