Wind Swept on Stones, Wire Tree Sculpture

Bonsai Boy 1
Wind Swept on Stones
Wire Tree Sculpture

14"H x 15"W x 13"D Created by combining 3 different types of wire. The base structure is 24 gauge steel galvanized steel wire, and the outer layers are 26 gauge brass and 26 gauge gold color wire. The two different outer layers give the surface of the tree sculpture a subtle gold color variation. The tree is "planted" onto a mound of small glossy rocks and pebbles. All is bonded onto an 8 inch round solid clear glass base. The sea sand, and some of the smaller pebbles, are painted yellow, green and white using India ink and giving the effect of moss covered earth.

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.
