pewter and bronze
for whatever reason these twigs and birch bark cutouts ended up looking like pewter and bronze, despite the fact that there is no metal present anywhere in this photo. did you know that pewter and bronze are actually the same mix of metals? bronze is just copper alloyed with a little bit of tin, whereas pewter is tin alloyed with just a little bit of copper. apparently winter light can also alloy a pile of tin twigs with just a little bit of copper, and can alloy a random scattering of copper birch bark coins with just a little bit of tin. but then, i have always known that winter light had the power of alchemy in it.
