Description

Tiny Giant

This delightful little tree stands only 6 cm high, but packs a big punch!

I like each of my trees to tell a story - when you look at this little tree, I want you to feel the sense of an ancient giant, maybe sitting in the middle of a forest clearing. It has seen many different seasons over hundreds of years, survived many violent storms; and now exudes an air of quiet strength and serenity......

The first tree pictured is made from recycled copper wire (from old 240 volt electrical cable). Over time it will age and take a delightful aged patina. There are 35 separate wires each 20 cm long that are continuous from the root tip to the end of the "leaves". There are over 200 individually formed "leaves".

The other pictured trees use coloured anodised copper wire which will remain bright and shiny for many years.

I built this tree to conform to ancient Bonsai principles in the Formal Upright style - known as Chokkan in Japan. So, it displays a strong vertical trunk tapering from spreading roots to the top leaves that are centred over the base. A harmonious balance must be achieved with the placement of branches that form a gentle triangle shape.

Each of my trees is unique - due to the way they are made, no two will ever be the same. There is no glue, welding or solder - the tree is entirely constructed by twisting and held together by friction alone. And yet is remarkably strong and should last for many years.

These trees are approximately 6 cm tall, 8 cm wide and 5 cm deep

Please note that the trees pictured have been sold, but when you order this, I will make one specially for you.

I am happy to take custom orders for this tree - select a colour and I will create one especially for you (or someone special). Remember that all my trees are unique so there will be variations but the overall style and size will be like the photos. It will take between 1 and 3 weeks to produce your individual tree (depending on how many orders I have and how complex the tree design).

These trees make excellent, unusual gifts or just something unique for you.

    Excellent service & very responsive -- was able to customise my order with no problems at all, excellent postage system, and end product (according to the friend I gifted it to) thought the attention to detail for the trunk and each of the leaves is lovely.

    Not only was this packaged extremely well (and survived Australia Post), it was better than described. Would highly recommend.
