Summer  1, Wire Tree Sculpture with full color leaves

 to USA on all orders over $ 100.00

Summer 1
With full color leaves

Overall size in inches: 15W x 15D x 15H. Created using 22, 24 and 26 gauge steel wire. The tree contains hundreds of leaves which are created by hammering the end of each wire twig to create a long flat leaf. Then each leaf is painted in greens, yellows and whites using enamel paint. The roots of the tree are bound into a sand and pebble mound that is painted in greens, yellows and whites using India ink to create the image of moss covered earth.  The tree sculpture is permanently fixed into an 8 inch round terracotta base. This sculpture can and should be displayed in direct sunlight since all the coloring and material used are light fast, and will not fade.
No. 127-9       $685.00

Detail of Leaves, Branches, Trunk and Base

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.
