I was talking to a friend the other day about what kinds of treasures they would like to find while living here in France. One thing that came up was copper, or le cuivre in French. I love copper as well and I have slowly but surely been building my collection. I gathered as many pieces as I could from around my house, there are a few that I couldn’t reach, and arranged them in my dining room. These pieces have come from all over; local brocantes, the Waterloo Brocante, and Emmaus. This little copper scale is one of my favorite pieces. I am hoping to have a big enough kitchen when we settle down one day to display some of these classic copper pieces that I have. Many of the copper pots I have still have the tinning on the inside and I would be using them, except that copper does not work on an induction stove top. Just another reason I am dreaming of a gas cook top one day.
I also have a Pinterest board full of some of the most inspirational photos of copper.
Do you have a favorite piece of copper?
