Fallen branches are always a part of an October Still Life here on this plateau we call home. The wind begins to pick up and clean the trees of weak and storm damaged limbs along with the falling leaves. Every now and then you find one in full color that some how managed to hang on to its leaves.
Often the colors that emerge from the iron during the process of repeated heat and reheat are the tones of fall and don't require much from our color palette. A few coats of a very pale moss green patina and several coats of bees wax highlighted what the process had already given us.
The end result is a lovely work of wall art that brings a bit of natures beauty to your space. Leaves don't really look out of place anywhere. This work can be hung at the angle of your choosing.
- It is 21 1/2 inches at its longest point and 9 inches at its widest point and will stand about an inch or so off the wall in some places. Care for this hammered sculpture by wiping with a beeswax based furniture polish. The bees wax will condition the patina and protect the piece from natural moisture in the air.
- Price includes shipping and applicable charges.
