Cascade No.5, Wire Tree Sculpture, with hammered leaves

Created using 20, 24, 26 gauge galvanized steel wire. 15"H x 18"W x 10"D. The end of each of the small wires is hammered flat creating small leaves. A large distressed rock is interwoven with the root system while the trunk of the tree gently leans on the rock for support. The tree and rock are bound into an oval shaped black glazed ceramic container. The sand and pebble mixture are painted with India ink in greens and yellows, giving the appearance of moss covered earth.

The inspiration for creating my sculpture grew from a lifetime love of trees.I am in awe of the stately presence and silent majesty they posses. I find the structure of trees to be one of the perfections in nature. With their roots embracing the earth; in winter they show their bones, in spring gentle buds, in summer a canopy of green and in fall a magical kaleidoscope of colors. Beauty, pure beauty.
