The large leaves at the base of the orchid set it off beautifully. All the orchids I have done in steel have had small leaves and your large leaves give the sculpture more of a presence. Lin

Hi Lin,
Thank you.
I had a nice piece of very weathered, thick steel sheet to make leaves for three different plants.
Will be going to a thinner sheet for the next plant so these leaves will get more shape.
Got some anvil ideas to assist making leaves and petals. I made one anvil out of a meat hook.
This sure is fun making metal plants and such.

Really like these

I like the direction you`re taking these plants Frank.
From what I see in the pics you`re really having fun with this and it shows.I look forward to seeing what comes next.
I also like the larger leaves at the base of this one,gives it a really nice balanced look.

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice there is.

Hi Daedalus,
Thank you.I need to throw in some dead leaves too, and more air roots and.... I can't wait to start the next plant and apply what the last one taught me.
