It was fun to try and replicate the magnolia flower in different phases, in full bloom, opening and closed tightly in a bud. Capturing the brilliant purple on the outside of the petals while keeping the bright soft white and gold interior was a challenge but ultimately really made these blossoms pop.

I also love how the darker leaves created a backdrop to help display the flowers. Creating the bark on the branch was a fun process that consisted of building up weld and then grinding it down, coloring it and then repeating this process to layer colors and textures. I feel this sculpture ended up having a nice balance of color and texture. I later designed another magnolia branch with a different bloom setup that was slightly larger you can see both designs above!I hope you enjoy!

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