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 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 sculpture is completely safe to be kept outdoors!
