Kaleidoscope of Copper, Wire Tree Sculpture

Kaleidoscope of Copper
Beaded Wire Tree Sculpture
by Sal Villano

13"High x 11"Wide x 10"Deep. Created using 24 and 26 gauge non-tarnish copper wire. The twigs and branches contain hundreds of metallic colored glass fringe beads. The fringe beads have a hole at the top of the bead, not through the center, so they look more natural when wirer into the tree. The base is made of hundreds of pieces of broken glass pieces and are attached to the base and between the roots using E6000 jewelers bonding agent. (E6000 is used to attach gem stones into their settings). All is mounted onto a 3/4" thick piece of solid blue-green glass, which matches the colors of the fringe beads. This piece looks magnificent when displayed in direct sunlight or in a very bright source light.

Details of Branches, Trunk and Root 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.
