Ablaze - bead and wire tree sculpture.
A gorgeously vibrant autumnal tree which originally was going to be another Halloween themed tree, but once it started coming together it took on another personality so autumn it is!
Made with bright orange opaque glass seed beads and twysted together with black coloured copper wire, around a thicker copper wire core. It did balance on its own, but after knocking it over (twice) I felt like a base was probably a good idea, so have attached it to a natural slate base with the use of apoxy clay and some decorative flair.
The slate base has been sanded down to remove any sharp edges and has been coated with several layers of matte varnish. Felt pads will be attached to the underside to give additional protection to any surface it is placed on.
Sits approximately 21.5 cms / 8.5 inches in height (including base)
Size: Height x Width 22.5 cms x 22.5 cms / 8.5 x 8.75 inches
Materials: Glass seed beads, black coloured tarnish resistant copper wire, tarnish resistant copper wire core, Apoxie Sculpt, acrylic paint, matt varnish
Care instructions: For ornamental use only. Copper wire is soft and can be bent easily - branches can be adjusted but bending back and forth repeatedly can cause the wire to weaken and it may snap.
