24" Wide x 22" Tall x 15" Deep
This 24” orchid flower is a handmade wall hanging metal sculpture that is created entirely from stainless steel. This bloom is based of of the Phaleonopsis orchid flower which I have always found to be incredibly beautiful. The bilateral symmetry is quite intriguing and the delicate complexity mixed with vibrant colors is stunning to me. I made an 11 inch version a little while back and it was fun to redesign the phaleonopsis to be larger because it required a keen eye to intricacy as the larger size requires more detail and precision in order for it to read properly.
This particular bright silver orchid with blue veins was quite time consuming as i colored the entire work blue and then came back and ground off everything but the veins with a tiny pneumatic pencil grinder. Though tedious I feel it paid off in the end as it captures light in an incredible way and the juxtaposition of bright silver petals with the deep blue and purple veins is stark and impactful. I am also very pleased with how the interior part of this flower works with the larger petals.
This sculpture is completely safe to be kept outdoors!
