Copper Wire Tree on Sonoma Coast Driftwood with Black Cat
This twisted tree is set on a lightly colored, beautifully textured piece of driftwood from the Sonoma Coast, accented with bright green moss. Sitting in the distance is a hand sculpted black cat with piercing green eyes.
The black cat was hand sculpted with polymer clay and then oven baked. This tree is hand sculpted using untreated copper wire. Because the wire is untreated, it will darken over time. The high points can be polished but the recessed area will continue to tarnish (darken). Therefore, the color and shininess of the metal may vary from the picture, but you will receive the exact tree that is pictured here.
Every tree sculpture is one of a kind. Each wire is carefully bent and positioned to give it its life-like qualities. I collect the driftwood from beaches I visit with the help of friends and family. The sculpture is completed with the addition of moss and a small sculpture.
