Copper Art Wire

The combined durability and malleability of copper wire has made it ideal for many industry applications as well as arts and crafts. Because of copper’s high conductivity, it has been commonly used as electrical wiring for homes and businesses since the 1820s. Many art projects have also been made using copper wire because of its appealing color, flexibility, and tensile strength. Purchase copper art wire in various gauges, lengths and shapes at Arcor Electronics to optimize for individual projects.

Artistic Aesthetic

There are many reasons people use copper wire for art projects. Its attractive coloration effectively complements other elements in decorations, such as colored beads in a copper necklace. Intricate sculptures and ornaments utilize copper art wire because it’s easy to manipulate while retaining its shape, with different gauges available to customize the wire’s overall strength. Copper’s resistance to humidity, temperatures, fire and chemicals also make it an optimal metal for outdoor projects.

In addition to different alloys and tempers, copper art wire is available in unique shapes such as braided and stranded to provide more visual design options for artists. Wire is also available in rounded square cuts and other custom-order shapes to meet project design specifications.
