Steel Willow, Wire Tree Sculpture

 Steel Willow  
Wire Tree Sculpture
by Sal Villano

Overall size is 8 x 6 x  6 inches. Made of 24 and 26 gauge solid steel wire. The steel wire will darken and turn dark gray, giving the tree a more realistic look. Planted on top of 5 pieces of irregular shaped glass, using a clear bonding agent mixed with sea sand and pebbles. The sea sand and pebbles are painted in yellows, greens and whites using India ink to create a look of moss covered earth. India ink is light fast and will not fade.    
No. 128-9       $125.

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.
