Delicate, southern, North Carolina, elegant, cheerful.


80" wide x 70" tall x 14" deep


I was asked by a local client to create a large dogwood branch to hang in her house overlooking her dining room table. More about the process below. After creating the large sculpture for her I created medium and small versions of flowering dogwood branch sculpture those images and sizes are pictured below as well!

The large dogwood sculpture has 61 flowers and 98 leaves and over 1,000 individual hand cut stamen! I hid hangers in the crotches of branches. The coloring technique used on the leaves will fade if hung outside but it is safe to be kept inside! I was very excited when approached with this project for many reasons, first large detailed projects are my favorite to dive into as they really allow for me to focus in on the subject matter and create the best sculpture I can! And while tedious and time consuming the satisfaction of completing such a project makes all the repetitive hours worth it! I also love the projects that are delicate in nature as I find it fun to create these light fragile looking pieces out of such a hard and permanent material like stainless steel. I also personally love dogwoods as they are the state flower of North Carolina where I grew up and currently live.
