 A bit of this and that about Bonsai trees and wire tree sculptures .

I would love to say that the idea of my wire tree sculptures came after the visiting the botanical garden, but to be true it didn’t. I always wanted to create trees. Even the idea itself has its own charm and beauty. To create trees 🙂

It always takes considered time and effort to create one small wire tree sculptures . In the beginning, I wasn’t thinking much about what tree i want to make. I just want to try, see if it works. If I would be able to make one. I wasn’t able even to find the first photos of the wire sculptures I’ve created. 

But then, it kind of hit me (and please don’t mock me because it is quite obvious). Every tree is different. I mean in nature. They are all there, all the time but I never really thought about it. I never thought that they differ so much. As simple as it is, my first tree of life sculptures where all the same size and shape. But after visitng this beautiful exhibition of Bonsai trees i decided to try something different. I still marvel at the beuty of them.  Bonsai trees are magical in my opition. I took some photos and well, one of my goals is to recreate of of them. One day. In the future. And in the same time I do hope such minature tree sculture would bring someone some peace and joy as the bonsai tree do…

Yep, the next step was to create a different shape , different type of wire wrapped tree of life… I’m still far from being able to create a particular tree but i do hope it is still a challange that is in front of me.  In the meantime you can see real bonsai up and some of my recent trees in the bottom. I wander which one you like the most.
