Currently unavailable for purchase

Copper Island, wire tree sculpture by 

Created using 26 and 28 gauge solid copper wire. 10″ × 10″x 8". The ends of each of the 26 gauge wire is hammered flat creating delicate thin copper leaves. The root system winds its way down and is bonded into a mound of sand and pebbles. A triangular antique clay brick is interlocked in the root system and the mound. The mound is made of sea sand and pebbles and is painted in yellows and greens using India ink. All is set in a 7" round clay container that matches the color of the brick.

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.
