Yellow Oak - Wire Tree Sculpture

Yellow Oak - Wire Tree Sculpture.
18"wide x 17"high x 17" deep. Tree is made of 18 & 26 gauge silver colored steel wire. The end of each twig is hammered flat and painted a bright yellow, using enamel, to form hundreds of leaves. The tree is secured into a round maroon colored glazed container in a sand and pebble mound directly in the center of several large textured stones. The sand is painted using India ink to look like moss. The overall sculpture has the feel of a mighty oak tree in all its colorful glory. When displayed in direct sunlight or very bright lights, the sculpture seems to glow a bright yellow.

Thanks again!

Hey Nelson.
I started creating wire tree sculpture in 1977. I have made thousands since I began. I do this full time and mostly make what I feel like, but I do get about 6 to 8 commissions a year. I just finished a commission that was presented to former Governor Kane of New Jersey. I also wrote a book on How to Create Tree Sculpture. If you are interested you can view all my work at: www.salvillano.com
Once again thank you very much for the complements!
