Gold Leaf Maple Wire Tree Sculpture
Overall size is 10"H x 7"W x 7"D. Constructed of, 26 and 28 gauge gold colored wire. The heavier wire is inside the tree for support, and the thinner wire is applied to the surface for texture detail. All the individual leaves on the tree are created by hammering and flattening the tip of each twig wire so that it looks like a thin leaf. The roots of the tree sculpture are bonded onto the base using sea sand and small pebbles. The base is a 6" round dark brown solid wood base. I have created many of these types of trees which have been presented as awards and thank you gifts. It is very easy for you to add a plaque to the wooden base to personalize the sculpture.
