Copper and Aluminum Wire Tree Sculptures by Randy Adams
Copper, Patinaed Copper and Aluminum Wire Tree Sculptures
Starting at $150.00, each style of these handmade wire tree sculptures are available in three standard sizes.
Local artist Randy Adams has been perfecting his wire trees for over 30 years. We have worked with him on several custom sculptures in larger sizes. One was 10 feet tall and "planted" in a sculpture garden! Each tree begins with aluminum or copper wire on a spool. The wires are cut, twisted and shaped by hand. The other material is Vermont slate which Randy hand selects from his secret source. The slate forms the base of the table trees, signed by the artist and finished with a sealant (and felt pads on the bottom)
The windblown trees are inspired by trees the artist saw on the coast of Newfoundland in Eastern Canada. These hardy coastal trees are permanently bent and twisted from the constant ocean gales on the cold windswept coast. These windblown trees capture and remind us of the force and grace of the natural world.
The maple trees are inspired by the sugar maples that Randy sees daily around his home in Vermont. These tall, strong and stately maples in miniature reflect the both the strength and delicacy and the unfailing beauty of our natural environment.
