This piece has some serious wow power to it.
The spike on this orchid was forged from 12 inches of ¾ x 1 in copper bar. The flowers and leaves were created from sheet copper. The balls are cast bronze and are to suggest new growth. The finish includes a variety of Smart Stains by Sculpt Nouveau and a torch fired finish on the leaves. This has been sprayed with several coats of lacquer to protect the finish. It was designed as a wall piece but would also look nice on a large table. 46 ½ inches long and weighs 6.2 pounds.
