For over a decade, Chase has been working with copper in a multitude of ways.  At the beginning of his study with reclaimed copper wire, he was focused on getting to know the material by creating decorative three-dimensional sculptures.  He has since integrated copper tubing into his work and even other types of materials such as glass and wood.  At this time Chase is working on various prototypes for furniture, lighting design, and even fountains in order to continue his experimentation with copper and other types of metal.
