Wire Sculptures

These are two wire sculptures I have completed of trees.  While I was working on these sculptures I wanted to try and capture the complexity of an organic form with an inorganic material.   I found that the process of making these sculptures to be a kind of reverse bonsai.  Instead of carefully trimming and controlling the growth of a tree, I had to slowly build up and add layers of complexity to create the form.

The two sculptures I am displaying are a maple tree and a more traditional Japanese bonsai.
