Available to purchase- http://metalbonsai.com/product/large-silver-wire-tree-sculpture-on-rough-cut-wood-base/
Recently I have been experimenting with video and below is the first two tests.
This crystal wire tree sculpture uses around 800 beads of various green colours and has 160 wires in the tree itself. This one took quite a long time to make, as 5 beads per wire is time consuming. The beads are glass and are faceted but also slightly rounded which made using them easier! I wanted to have natural looking roots and they sit on the driftwood base nicely. I am really happy with how it turned out. This will be listed on the website at some point but if you are interested, please contact me.
This wire tree is made with 4 colours of wire, silver, rose gold, dark purple and grape purple and the wire is 0.315mm thick. There is a dramatic twist in the trunk showing off the different coloured wires and styled as a informal upright this wire tree sits in a white rectangular Walsall studio ceramics container and has a moss effect on the base. You can see there are some exposed roots to complete the sculpture.
