REDBUD ON PERIDOT WIRE TREE SCULPTURE
Wayne Trinklein has spent over three decades developing his unique techniques in molded copper wire, tin, and lead to create each tree individually for its rocky setting. He often uses a special method of shaping metal at its "eutectic" point, an elusive state of heated metal when it can be worked like clay.
His tree sculptures can be found world-wide, from the desks of governors and executives, to the homes of many people who seek from nature an inspiration for their lives. It is the joy seen in their faces and heartfelt words, which encourage Wayne in his lifelong artistic professions a special method of shaping metal at its eutectic point, an elusive state of heated metal when it can be worked like clay.
This tree measures 10" in height, 9" in length, and 6" in width.
