24" Wide x 22" Tall x 15" Deep
This bloom is based off 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 design was fun because I am usually someone who strives for balance. But imbalance can be elegant and create something that feels more alive and natural. I have always loved orchids with seemingly random splotches on their petals as though a painter took a brush and flicked it on a pristine white flower with no regard for where the color might land. This results in something exquisitely alive. So I tried to emulate some of those flowers that I have seen and am pretty happy with how it turned out!
This 24” orchid flower is a handmade wall hanging metal sculpture, created entirely from stainless steel, colored using only heat patinas and is completely safe to be kept outdoors!
I now have 3 different sizes templated out. The larges is 31” wide by 27” tall by 18” deep, the next size is 24” wide by 22” tall by 15” deep and the smallest is 18” wide by 16” tall by 11” deep.
