Small Copper Wire Tree on Humboldt Coast Driftwood with Wizard and Quartz Crystal
This twisted tree is set on a dark colored, beautifully textured piece of driftwood from the Humboldt Coast, accented with sage green moss and a quartz crystal. Gazing into the distance is a hand sculpted wizard, Odin, with a crackled quartz crystal ball tucked into his bag to guide him, as he journeys on.
Odin was hand sculpted using polymer clay and then oven baked. The tree was 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, a genuine quartz crystal, and a small sculpture.
