Testimonials

“My fabricator has used Architectural Patinas in the past for different metal patinas. When it came time for me to have a hammered copper hood fabricated by Lux, they suggested Cliff. The end product was as beautiful and consistent with the sample he provided. Cliff operated in a professional and timely manner which enabled me to complete my project on time. My client was estatic with the hood! I am very pleased with his work and would highly recommend him.”

“Cliff White is an exceptional artist and vendor. He has completed a number of metal projects for us including both patina finishing and acid etching work in a wide range from simple to complex. In one project we ask Cliff for etched copper panels and a matching insert for a range hood. Cliff took the paper drawing and raw copper and combined them into a commissioned work of art. Through his craft he was able to imbue the metal with life, depth and color. I truly appreciate people who timely deliver high quality product at a fair price. When those people are great to work with and have integrity, they are exceptional. We look forward to working with you again.”

Thank's Cliff for a great job on the Napa Project, the walkway steel risers look sharp in the deep brown patina and compliment the compressed granite steps perfectly. We look forward to our next project together.
