This graceful bonsai sculpture is handcrafted from over 300 feet of high-quality aluminum wire that have been twisted together and shaped to form the roots, trunk, branches, and leaves. The tree depicts the cascading bonsai style. This piece features a beautiful live edge walnut base, which complements the exposed roots of the sculpture. The tree is attached to the base using an adhesive, and the roots are mechanically fitted to the base. The walnut base hand was finished with coats of Danish oil, shellac, and wax to accentuate the unique grain and coloration within the wood.
