This sculpture is handcrafted from 400 feet of high-quality aluminum wires that have been twisted together and shaped to form the roots, trunk, branches, and leaves. The black finish on the wire will maintain its color over time. This piece features a cascading bonsai form with exposed roots. This sculpture features driftwood I collected along the Iowa River. The worn look of the driftwood complements the organic shape of the wire bonsai. The sculpture sits upon a museum-quality steel stand. The base of the stand is approximately 4.5 inches in diameter and is finished in black semi-gloss paint.
