My first sculpture

This is a picture I took of my first attempt at metal sculpture.  It is the base and trunk of a giant sequoia tree.  It looks a bit shiny, it needs coloring of some sort, I have not figured that part out yet. Any suggestions would be appreciated.  I guess I never thought that the picture would be laying on its side, lol.

Copper Repousse Wall Sculpture

This 25" wall sculpture was hammer formed from 16 gauge copper sheet metal. This is one of a series of wall relief sculptures I have made based on coral formations, using the process of repousse and chasing.
