Welded metal sculpture  -  08/29/2011    Location:   Point Lobos Ridge - Red Wolf Drive ,   Carmel, CA 
 
This is a steel wedding chuppa that was a private commission.    All elements are heated and formed; welded and then shaped with a grinder/abrasives.     The coloration is obtained with a patina and then sealed with a clear coat.  Ultimately they will be allowed to weather somewhat in the coastal environment.  
The size is 8 foot posts and the tree is 7' 8" at the highest point.

An alternative view with some different lighting.    My goal was to obtain a very natural, realistic looking sculpture that represented my perception of a manzanita tree.   I stayed with a more minimal approach with the leaves, etc., so as not to obstruct the view through the trees.
Close up of the leaves.   The leaves were laser cut and then lightly forged to shape them.  I used a slate black patina color on the leaves, using a sponge, squeezed the patina color on the leaves and let the black drip down and mix with the brown patina on the branches/trunk.    It made a real nice subtle transition in the colors.
Just an interesting view of the back of the sculpture -  really represents the natural look these steel trees took on.
