  • 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.
