Rose Vine Covered Arch on Barnwood
paint, aluminum wire, copper wire, craft wire, barnwood
I feel like this piece gives you a sense of peacefulness and sweetness. It is like a place you stumble upon when venture down a quiet dirt road. If I saw it, I would definitely think to myself "I want to go there and do nothing all day". It is a perfect fall scene. This would make an excellent gift for anyone for any occasion and would fit beautifully in any room or office. Definaty a conversation piece!
The trees are constructed of 20 gauge copper wire. They have been oxidized to a deep brown. The fence and arch are hand made of tarnished copper wire. Each vine was hand made, with hundreds of green leaves and roses twisted throughout. The frame is made from barnwood salvaged from an old barn in northern Michigan and trimmed with old tobacco sticks from Tennessee.
