Overview

Three 4' x4' copper iris wall art hanging sculptures with copper butterflies.

Goals

To follow an Ikibana style low relief Iris flower copper wall hanging design. This design element was to integrate three steel planters with plants. The copper iris plants were designed to hang on the wall just above the planters. The copper Iris flowers and bulbs were sculpted 3 dimentionaly as to bring out the more realistic and sculptural aspect of this wall artwork. It also helped relate it to the planter boxes.

Process

I collaborated with Teresa of Ecology by design. She was the landscape architect who commissioned this project for her client.
