Cascade No. 4, Wire Tree Sculpture|
19"W x 21"H x 12"D. Made of 22, 24 and 26 gauge rusted steel wire. The tree contains hundreds of leaves which are created by hammering the end of each twig to create a flat leaf. Then each leaf is painted in greens yellows and whites using enamel paint. The roots of the tree are bound into a sand and pebble mound that is painted in greens and yellows using India ink to create the image of moss covered earth. The sculpture is permanently fixed to the dark solid wood 5 legged elevated base. This sculpture can and should be displayed in direct sunlight since all the coloring and material used are light fast, and will not fade.
