I've seen artist do variations of this theme before but nothing quite as intricate as what you are doing. I keep having to take another look at it because the tree looks like a mechanical drawing with the amount of detail. The shadow effects look amazing. I also love the base you choose for this sculpture as it really adds to the flow of the piece. Simply beautiful!
You are looking at about 250 strands of Aluminum alloy wire that started out at 14" in length and were twisted into the tree over the course of 3 years. This tree has nothing other than the Aluminum alloy in it. Here is a vid of another tree about halfway complete. [link] Thank You for your interest. I will check your gallery. kai
