This shows the size requested commission of two of my trees.  One picture shows them zinc plated and the other shows them as powder coated in what is called Copper Vein.  Which is very dark and looks black from a distance, but has gold/copper tones with the black.  I tried to get pictures to show the texture and the colors, but nothing that shows it very well.  I am hoping the sun will be shining and I will try and get some outside pictures of it before I try and ship it off.  There are 3 different sizes of wire used and I think I calculated that I used over 160 feet of wire in making this piece.

I guess I have not seen the Oaks in Winter, and I don't name any of my tree pieces.  Maybe I should.  But, I would probably call them Tree 1, Tree 2, etc....  :-)

Very nice MM, I like the zinc better... but I like shiny things so chromed would look awesome in my eyes!

 

Chromed would make it look art deco [Worthy]

I have a bunch of post oak trees that drop their leaves and just have bare limbs, 

 

your pieces reminded me of them. 20170121_0744481.jpg

 Yes, that is the thought process/design of my trees.

That is how I sell some, but this was for a piece over the mantel on a fireplace and wanted a darker color.
