Steel Elm, Beaded wire tree sculpture
9"wide x 11"high x 8"deep. The tree is made of 18 & 26 galvanized steel wire. The branches and twigs contain hundreds of tiny glass fringe beads. Each glass bead is interwoven into wire giving the structure of the tree a very natural look. The tree is "planted" on a 6" round solid base. All is bound together into sand, pebbles and a few small rocks are intermingled among the roots. The mixture is painted in greens, yellows and whites, using India ink and looks like moss covered earth. When the sculpture is displayed in direct sunlight, or very bright lights, it is ablaze with many colors as it reflects the combination of all the colors of the glass beads, the root mound and the steel wire.
