Abalone Wind Swept, Wire Tree Sculpture

Wind Swept
Wire Tree Sculpture

9"H x 12"W x 8"D. Created using 24 gauge gold color tarnish resistant wire. The wind swept tree is mounted on a 6 inch root round base in front of the 6 inch X 2 inch polished multi color Abalone shell. All the elements are securely bonded together on a mound using a permanent bonding agent. The mound is painted using India ink, in greens, yellows and whites. The colors are Light Fast, and will not fade. This piece looks amazing when placed in sunlight. It produces a kaleidoscope of reflected colors emitting from the inside of the iridescent shell, and the gold color wire branches and twigs of the tree.  This piece can be custom created in different metals and sizes. Please contact me if you are interested and for more information.

Details of Branches, Abalone Shell, Tree and Root Mound Structure

The way I ship my tree sculpture is by using a box within a box. For example, if the sculpture is 8 x 8 x 8 inches,  I wire the tree onto the inside bottom of another box that is a least 10 x 10 x 10 inches. The tree sculpture is secured  into the center on the bottom of this inner box so that none of the branches ever touch any of  the sides or inside top of the inner box. The inner box is then sealed and put into the larger outer box and bubble wrap is placed around all the sides, top and bottom of the box that has the tree sculpture wired into it. This creates a bubble wrap cushion around the entire box that contains the tree sculpture. I have been told by some of my customers that the shipping boxes have arrived upside down and battered, however, due to the securing of the tree inside the smaller box and the cushioning around all the sides of this box, the tree sculpture arrives safe and sound. I have shipped thousands of  tree sculptures, as far away as Japan, India and China. I have never had any problems, or have any of the tree sculptures been returned or damaged. Insurance on all pieces is included in the shipping costs.
