" Black Canna"



THE FLOWER SCULPTURE SHOWN ABOVE IS A MIXTURE OF MATERIALS, IRON AND BRASS MAKE UP THE FLOWER STRUCTURE, AND A SMALL QUARTZ ROCK PROVIDES THE BASE. THE STYLE IS CONTEMPORARY, USUALLY TRADITIONAL SHAPES ARE WHAT I CREATE, BUT THIS ONE TOOK A MORE MODERN AND SLIGHTLY ABSTRACT DIRECTION.

ABOUT THE DESIGN..THERE IS A FLOWER BED ON THE SIDE OF MY HOUSE, IN THAT BED THERE IS A "CANNA TROPICANA" FLOWER, TOOK ME A WHILE TO FIGURE OUT THAT NAME..HA..HA. ANYWAYS THAT LEAF SHAPE WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS SCULPTURE.

MULTIPLE BRASS AND IRON STAMENS ADD SOME ORGANIC FORM TO THE INSIDE OF THE FLOWER, ALONG WITH VARIOUS LEAF WORK IN THE MIDDLE AND STAGGERED TOWARDS THE BOTTOM.

COULD BE AN INTERESTING GARDEN SCULPTURE FOR AN OUTSIDE ART DECORATION DISPLAY.

HERE IS A CLOSE-UP OF THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SCULPTURE, A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN THE FIRST SIDE YOU SEEN, SOME SMALL SCROLLED SPROUTS CURL UP FROM THE CENTER. NATURAL GREEN AND REDS SHADE THE BRASS WORK, A RESULT OF SURFACE OXIDATION. THE REMAINDER OF THE FLOWER IS SEALED WITH AN AGED IRON PAINT FINISH.

THIS ONE WOULD WORK AS AN INTERIOR OR EXTERIOR ART PIECE, PERFECT FOR A GARDEN DECORATION, AND THE STURDY BASE HELPS WEIGHT IT DOWN RATHER WELL.

SIZE- 17 1/2 INCHES TALL
