Heart made from copper wire stripped from recycled electric cabling and wound round itself to create heart shape. Placed in rusty tin, part filled with water. Droplets of water create concentric ripples on the surface Copper was the earliest metal to be used by humans. It is easily drawn out into wire and is a very good conductor of heat and electricity, so is frequently used for electrical wiring. When clean it is this distinctive red brown colour, but weathers to a bluish green.
