A unique metalwork creation inspired by the natural world made by Sharon McSwiney in St Ives, Cornwall.
Individual small metal 'tiles' are adorned with leaves in copper & brass. The pieces have been etched which creates the surface details. Also embossing is utilised to make the raised 'bubbles'. The pieces are individually silver soldered onto the brass back plates to contrast the colours. Flux and heat create the interesting colour variations. The piece has been lacquered to highlight the colours & protect the surface.
The metalwork is mounted into an open deep 'tray'style frame which can be freestanding or wall mounted.
This piece includes the following leaves: acer, beech, oak, lime, horse chestnut, ginkgo, ivy & sycamore.
SIZE: The frame is approx 35 cm x 35 cm & 3.5 cm deep. The metal background base pieces measure approx 5 cm x 5 cm. The piece is signed & dated on the reverse & initialed on the front.
