This Handcrafted Copper Windswept Maple Tree Wall Art measures over three feet long for a stunning focal point for any home or garden. An original design by artist Andy Brinkley, this copper maple tree wall sculpture is carefully handcrafted in rural North Carolina. It's constructed by brazing copper and brass pieces together using a filler rod and an oxyacetylene torch. This maple tree wall art's delicate design features vibrant shades of red and orange, evoking the autumn colors of maple trees. Its warm tones are achieved by heating the copper until the metal is red hot, then quenching the copper with room-temperature water. The maple tree appears to be bending softly in the breeze, bringing a touch of natural Zen to your indoor or outdoor décor. Lightweight and easy to hang. Hardware included. If placed outside, the copper will oxidize to a green patina, not rust. Treated with a clear, non-yellowing acrylic coating for outdoor use.
Andy, a native of Virginia, has been working with metals for over three decades. Initially a blacksmith, he began to utilize various metals and has specialized in brass and copper for the past 30 years. Andy started working out of a small basement shop and today his studio is on a rural woodland nestled in North Carolina's Appalachian foothills. When he's not tending to his gardens or sculpting at his bench, Andy can be found at the controls of his antique Luscombe aircraft.
