Wire trees or tree sculptures

Wire trees are also known as beaded trees, wire tree sculptures, tree sculptures, wire bonsai trees, gem trees and model trees.

They are made by twisting many, many wires together and are then shaped into a tree shape. My knowledge of bonsai helps me with this process.

With my trees the roots are wrapped around and under the rock to give it a bonsai look. Having studied a little about bonsai many years ago, I know this is called the “root-over-rock” style.

I like to add felt to the bottom of each rock to cover the wire ends so that they won’t scratch the surface they’re sitting on.

All of these trees are one-of-a-kind, no two trees are exactly alike.

Here's a sneak peek.

They'll all be available from Craft Cove soon.
