Brass Wind Swept
#65-08      $475.00

14"H x 15"W x 13"D
Created by combining 3 different types of wire. The base structure is 24 gauge steel galvanized steel wire, and the outer layers are 26 gauge brass and 26 gauge gold color wire. The two different outer layers give the surface of the tree sculpture a subtle gold color variation. The tree is "planted" onto a mound of small glossy rocks and pebbles. All is bonded onto an 8 inch round solid clear glass base. The sea sand, and some of the smaller pebbles, are painted yellow, green and white using India ink and giving the effect of moss covered earth.

Copper Oak

SOLD

19"H x 18"W x 18"D
Made of 20 and 26 gauge solid copper wire The interior of the sculpture is composed of the heavier wire for strength. The outer layers are created using the thinner wire for a finer texture. The ends of every twig are hammered flat to create the leaves. This piece has already begun to patina producing a soft green color. The base is a very heavy 8" x 1.5" solid clear glass container. The sculpture is mounted into the base using a bonding agent mixed with sea sand and small pebbles. The sea sand, and some of the smaller pebbles, are painted yellow, green and white using India ink and giving the effect of moss covered earth.

Bonsai Boy 4

Dogwood on Lawn
 #68-08      $790.00

19"H x 19"W x 21"D
The main trunk and branches of this sculpture are made of 20 and 26 gauge steel galvanized wire, giving the surface a matte gray finish. The outer twigs and hundreds of hammered leaves are created of 26 gauge brass wire. The combination of the two types of wire gives the sculpture a lifelike and very full appearance. In contrast to the multi colors of the tree, the sculpture is planted into a very simple 8" round grass covered base. The grass is created using several types of sand which is painted in green, yellow and white India ink. Like all the India ink I use it is light fast, and will not fade if placed in direct sunlight.
