DANIEL-CLAUDIU DUMITRESCU WORK IN COPPER

DANIEL-CLAUDIU
DUMITRESCU
WORK IN COPPER
AND LEAD
I asked Daniel Dumitrescu if he could make
the lilied crosses like those in the Bodleian
Library in Oxford that I use in our library in
Florence. He said he could. And made them
out of copper with the traditional Roma tools.
He inherited these tools from his grandfather
who was the most famous coppersmith in their
part of Romania.
I next asked Daniel if he could replace the
missing lead letters on our tombs. He had
brought within him these same tools and did
the work expertly.
This is the tomb of Eleanor Augusta Tulk, the
work being commissioned by her Australian
descendants.
