This bonsai forest is handcrafted from strands of high-quality copper wire that have been twisted together and shaped to form the trunk, branches, and leaves of the trees. The bare copper wire will continue to develop a beautiful patina over time. This piece features five bonsai trees at different stages of growth and utilizes a beautiful piece of live-edge walnut and river stones to capture the essence of a bonsai forest. The trees and stones are attached to the base using an adhesive. The walnut base is hand finished with Danish oil, followed by coats of shellac and wax to accentuate the unique grain, coloration, and luster within the wood.
