Autumn Bonsai, Wire Tree Sculpture

Autumn Bonsai wire tree sculpture by Sal Villano
Autumn Bonsai
Wire Tree Sculpture

16x13x12 inches. Created with 18, 20, 26 gauge galvanized steel wire. The end of each wire is hammered flat to form the shape of a small leaf. The hundreds of leaves are hand painted using enamel paint in yellows, golds and reds to create a "fire" of Autumn colors. Two antique clay brick pieces are used to visually stabilize the tree structure into a dark green rectangular glazed ceramic container. The tree is planted into a lawn of sea sand and pebbles which are painted green, yellow and white with India ink to give the appearance of moss covered earth.

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",  I wire the tree onto the inside bottom of a box that is a least 10" x 10" x 10". 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 this box. The inner box is then sealed and put into another larger outer box and bubble wrap is placed around the sides, top and bottom of the box with the tree sculpture in it. I have been told by some of my customers that boxes have arrived upside down and battered, however, due to the cushioning around all the sides of the inner box, the sculpture arrives safe and sound. I have shipped thousands of  tree sculptures, as far away as Japan and India, and I have never had any problems or any sculpture returned or damaged. Insurance is included in the shipping costs.
