Beyond Bonsai

A Love Affair with Welding


BEYOND BONSAI

Showed this "Autumn in Ohio" at little art/craft show in Tulsa, Ok
Priced at $650, it was admired but not sold. I am putting on my website as it is one of the prettiest ones that I have made. It will hang happily on a wall or can sit on shelf or mantle above a fireplace.

I also entered it in a little online art show at EBSQ, where it won "Patrons Mention" the only sculptural piece to do so. EBSQ

This welded, 16.5" x 13" x 6", tree is carefully built of molten steel. After the base and all of the branches are formed, I shape each copper leaf and braze it to its own branch with a drop of brass. When all are attached, I heat and cool each leaf to various rose-red colors.

A little copper bench, which gives scale is included with tree. It is not attached, so can be moved wherever you wish. I also put a little heart and your initials on bench.

Here is a detail of the leaves.


SOLD, but it gives an idea of my prices.
I will be making another one similar, if interested:

I am welding some very small and inexpensive tree forms that can be hung on wall or window.| 4 inch diameter $35. and some that are about 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches which sell for $25.

These are often called ATC or Artist Trading Cards.
These are sold but I can make one similar for you.
