This wire bonsai exudes joy. This bonsai sculpture is handcrafted from multiple aluminum wires (reds, yellows, silver, gold, blue, green) that have been twisted together and shaped to form the trunk, branches, and leaves. This piece features over 400 wire loop leaves and depicts the upright informal bonsai style. For this piece, I chose to use a simple white ceramic pot filled with smooth black stones, which accentuates the multiple colors within the bonsai tree. The tree and pebbles are held in place using an adhesive resin.
