~METAL FLOWERS~


THE IMAGE FEATURED ABOVE IS A RECENT WROUGHT IRON ART SCULPTURE. THIS ONE HAS SOME NICE LEAF AND FLOWER WORK, FABRICATED AND SHAPED BY HAND. A RATHER LARGE SCULPTURE, 32 X 32, I USUALLY MAKE THEM A BIT SMALLER THAN THIS, BUT THIS ONE WAS A CUSTOM METAL ART PROJECT FOR A CLIENT'S BUSINESS.

THE ORIGINAL SHAPE COMES FROM AN OLDER METAL WALL ART DESIGN "ORNAMENTAL TULIP" MADE FOR A WALL ACCENT DECORATION. USED THAT PARTICULAR DESIGN, AND THE COLLABORATION WITH THE CLIENT TO INSPIRE THIS TABLE SCULPTURE.

Branch Detail


ABOVE IS A DETAIL OF THE BRANCH (RIGHT SIDE), YOU CAN ALSO SEE THE BRASS SCROLLS EXTENDING FROM THE CENTER OF THE LEAVES, WANTED TO MIX AN ALTERNATIVE MATERIAL FOR HIGHLIGHT AND COLOR. THE MAIN FLOWER ALSO HAS THREE BRASS STAMENS PROTRUDING FROM THE BULB...DELICATE LOCATION.

THE FINISH...A UNIQUE FINISH OF PATINA AND LIGHT PAINT APPLICATION GIVES THIS AN ORIGINAL APPEARANCE. THE PATINA WAS ADDED FIRST, ONCE THE RED RUST (FROM OXIDATION) COLOR IS CREATED, A SMALL AMOUNT OF BLACK AND ORANGE OPAQUE PIGMENT WAS SPONGED ON FOR MORE COLOR EMPHASIS. SEALED WITH A MATTE CLEAR COAT FOR PROTECTION.

A LOVELY ORNAMENTAL SCULPTURE FOR A TABLE ACCENT, OR MAYBE A LARGE WINDOW SILL. CAN ALSO BE PLACED ON THE EXTERIOR AS A NICE METAL GARDEN SCULPTURE.
