METAL FLOWER ART

METAL FLOWER ART IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE AREAS WHEN IT COMES TO METAL ART, THE FLORAL AND BOTANICAL SHAPES AND FORMS THAT GIVE RISE TO AN ORGANIC LOOKING STRUCTURE WITH THE RIGIDNESS OF STEEL, COMBINES DELICACY OF FLORAL COMPOSITIONS, WITH THE LASTING QUALITIES OF IRON.

CREATING FLORAL OBJECTS HAS BEEN A THERAPEUTIC REHABILITATION FOR ME, MY ESCAPE FROM THE FACTORIES OF MODERN PRODUCTION WELDING THAT HAS BEEN MY CHOSEN PROFESSION FOR MANY YEARS, NO MORE TECHNICAL BLUEPRINTS AND MUNDANE MECHANICAL PROCEDURES TO FOLLOW, INSTEAD THE EXACT OPPOSITE, AN IMAGINATION WITH NO SET BORDERS OR GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW.

CREATING DECORATIVE PIECES FROM THE HEART AND SOUL OF ONESELF, USING NATURE AS A LIVING DESIGN BOOK OF SORTS THEN USING THE HUMAN MIND FOR SOME DECORATIVE IMAGERY IS WHAT, IN MY OPINION IS TRUE ART.

IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE AND JOY TO DISPLAY SOME OF MY WORK FOR MY VISITORS TO SEE AND ENJOY, AS TIME GOES BY MY EXPECTATIONS ARE TO CREATE AND SHOW MORE OBJECTS RELATED TO METAL FLOWER ART AND SIMILAR VARIATIONS OF THIS DECORATIVE MEDIUM.

IRON SPRIG

METAL FLOWER ART



"IRON SPRIG" FORMING THIS DECORATIVE IRON SCULPTURE WAS SOMETHING I TRULY HAD FUN WITH, KEEPING THE DESIGN SIMPLE AND SLEEK TO PROVIDE A NATURAL AND FLOWING SHAPE, WITHOUT TO MUCH ORNAMENTATION, WAS MY MAIN INTENTIONS. HIGHLIGHTED WITH A TEAL BASE COAT,AND SLIGHTLY BLENDED WITH RUBY AND BRASS METALLIC PAINT CREATE A COLORFUL BUT SUBTLE FINISH. I CURRENTLY AM DISPLAYING THIS SCULPTURE IN A WHITE BOOKCASE, LIGHTER BACKGROUNDSSEEM TO GO WELL WITH THIS ONE.

DIMENSIONS: 12 1/2 X 9 INCHES/BASE 5 X 3 1/2 INCHES


BLOOM

"BLOOM" THIS MIXTURE OF STEEL AND GLASS WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS ORIGINALLY INTENDED TO BE A STAND ALONE DECORATIVEMETAL CREATION, BUT I WANTED TO ADD SOME COLOR WITHOUT USING TRADITIONAL PAINT TECHNIQUES. HAVING AN INTEREST IN GLASS, I DECIDED TO CUT THE LEAVES FROM STAINED GLASS AND ATTACH THEM TO THE METAL BODY FOR SOME COLOR AND HIGHLIGHT. ALTHOUGH IT IS A DELICATE AND FRAGILE DESIGN, MY INTENTIONS WERE TO CREATE SOMETHING FRAME LESS TO ACCENT A LARGE WINDOW, A LIGHT CATCHER OF SORTS. I REALLY ENJOY ADDING GLASS TO MY OBJECTS, FOR ME IT OFFERS A CHALLENGE OF PATIENCE.

DETAILS: DIMENSIONS: 18 X 10 INCHES
ORNAMENTAL METAL BODY & STAINED GLASS LEAVES RED,YELLOW,GREEN,BLACK.
