The spike on this orchid was forged
from a piece of ¾ x 1 in square
copper bar. The flowers and leaves
were created from copper sheet.
The balls are cast bronze and
are to suggest new growth.
The finish includes red and brown
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 as a center piece
for a table.
30 inches long and 3.6 pounds
