Gold Leaf Maple, Wire Tree Sculpture

Gold Leaf Maple
Wire Tree Sculpture

Overall size is 10"H x 7"W x 7"D. Constructed of, 26 and 28 gauge gold colored wire. The heavier wire is inside the tree for support, and the thinner wire is applied to the surface for texture detail. All the individual leaves on the tree are created by hammering and flattening the tip of each twig wire so that it looks like a thin leaf. The roots of the tree sculpture are bonded onto the base using sea sand and small pebbles. The base is a 6" round dark brown solid wood base. I have created many of these types of trees which have been presented as awards and thank you gifts. It is very easy for you to add a plaque to the wooden base to personalize the sculpture.

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.
