I have always loved these flowers with their vibrant color and the way the petals spiral out from the center overlapping each other. I also love the complex stamen and style of these flowers! The stamen bundle was quite the challenge on this one as it is very complex. I couldn't get the anther to weld onto the filament as they are too delicate so I had to make an artistic choice and leave them off on this design. I never like doing this but I think the overall effect still works quite well!

This metal hibiscus sculpture is wall hanging, made entirely of stainless steel, colored using only heat patinas and must be kept indoors.
