Short Stories (Testimonials)

Dear Sam – It has been just over a month since the installation of those beautiful custom Copper Fields planters on our stone patio wall. As we recall the process from selecting you to design these timeless works of art, through the collaboration on every detail – from selection of the most desirable gauge of copper, dimensions, texture, to patina and careful transport – we are in awe of the sheer serendipity of that Google search for “custom copper planters”! Thank you for your care, creativity, listening skills, attention to detail, and professionalism … a “mix” that is all too rare these days. We never felt rushed or pushed to move beyond our comfort level as the design evolved. Your experience with the creative process allowed us to fully engage and make the design our own, while benefiting from your thoughtful guidance! 

As you know, we are already planning the next phase of our work together and marvel daily at how these copper planters have added life and beauty to our stone wall.  With kind regards and appreciation,



Sam is a true pleasure to work with! He is incredibly artistic, has an amazing eye for color and I am thrilled with the work he has done in my home.



We thought about ordering a custom made coffee table from Copper Fields Design Studio.  We have always loved the look and patina of copper, but short of buying copper pots, we had no idea how to get that look integrated into our home.

Sam came over to discuss our thoughts with us, and made us feel that he could collaborate with us to create something that would work in our home and suit our taste.

Together we designed the most amazing coffee table, using two distinct finishes, a dark texture on the base, and a brighter brushed smooth finish for the top.  The end result is more fantastic than I ever could have hoped for.

The size is perfect as well, since it was made to fit our space exactly.  The color and finish work so well with the decor because Sam returned  numerous times to check that his colors were right and what we wanted.

All in all, working with this company has been an excellent and rewarding experience. I highly recommend Copper Fields Design Studio and their head designer, Sam SpanoThank you so much Sam, for making me something I’ve always wanted but never knew how to find ….

I was on a quest for an unusual end table for my family room when I met Sam at the Lyndhurst Crafts Fair last year. He was showing his new line of planters and small tables made of copper. I immediately knew that that’s what I wanted. Sam and Suzanne came to my house, brought samples of the different hammered copper he could do, took measurements and a couple of weeks later I had my beautiful table. It has become a conversation piece because it’s so different. It is easy to care for—just dust it. Bottom line—I love it! And Sam and Suzanne were a delight to work with!



I have had the incredible good fortune to have purchased several of Sam’s creations.
As I’m composing this testimony to his genius , I’m looking out on the 6 Copper Fields 
Pieces on my deck. As beautiful and unique as Sam’s work appears in the summer, it’s even more amazing in the dreary winter. I never imagined that I would get year round enjoyment from his work. Hopefully, this year I’ll have another addition to my Copper Fields family.
