This wall hanging magnolia branch sculpture is made entirely of stainless steel. It was fun to try and replicate the magnolia flower 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 colores and textures. I feel this sculpture ended up having a nice balance of color and texture. I hope you enjoy! This sculpture must be kept indoors.
