The Copper Bucket is made from Copper, rather than Iron. Copper has too low a melting point to contain Lava, and copper curdles Milk. However, a Copper Bucket will transport water.
The Copper Bucket has advantages over the Iron Bucket. Copper is more plentiful, and generally available sooner, than Iron, allowing for ease of use early in the game (when Iron is better used for tools and armor). Further, a Copper Bucket can be smelted back into the three Copper Ingots used to craft it. This means a large number of Copper Buckets can be crafted to transport a larger amount of water, and then be completely restored to the original crafting materials.
The Copper Bucket is crafted from three Copper Ingots, in the same way an Iron Bucket is crafted from Iron Ingots.
The Copper Bucket can be smelted back into the original three Copper Ingots.
