Hammered copper refers to the appearance of having been worked with a hammer. It is now pressed into the copper with a mold to make it look rustic. In the past, copper was hammered into shape and the process left small indentations in the copper. That is no longer the case, but the look is what sets a quality piece of copper apart from a cheap imitation.
