Bonsai Wind Swept, Wire Tree Sculpture

Bonsai Wind Swept
Wire Tree Sculpture
12"wide  X  10"high  X  6"deep.  This wind swept tree is created using 22 gauge steel galvanized wire. It is securely bonded into a 2" X 3" rectangular blue glazed bonsai pot,  The tree is fixed onto the base using a mixture of a bonding agent, sea sand and small pebbles. The sand and the pebbles are painted with yellows, greens and whites  India ink which gives  the sand the appearance and texture of colorful moss covered earth. The India ink is "light fast" and the colors of the moss will not fade if  placed in direct light. The steel wire will turn a gray color with age, but since the wire is galvanized, it will not rust.

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.
