The Tree of Life sculpture

The Tree of Life sculpture

Art and nature unify in unparalleled design.

Meticulously carved in warm bronze, a tree comes to life in your home, set in a plinth of English oak. In its own standing it is a delightful piece of art dedicated to a love of nature and our woodlands. It stands 22 cm tall, hand carved with traditional tools and cast using traditional bronze sculpture techniques. The plinth is also hand carved from reclaimed English oak sourced in Cambridgeshire. It comes beautifully presented and would make a most lovely gift.

This ‘naked’ bare winter season sculpture offers you the opportunity to get your creative juices flowing and create and deign yourself. Individual oak leaves handcrafted from bronze and recycled silver coins are available to add to your sculpture. “Find scattered, silver leaves, a memory, a crescent moon, a gift.” You may want to immediately “get to work” on your masterpiece or use it as an opportunity to collect over time, give others gift ideas in the future!

“Collect the leaves and memories of your life and add them to your tree; set the preciousness of a birth, the joy of an anniversary, the elation of a birthday into faceted gems, keep the dearness of your loved ones close, watch your tree bloom.” Find your family tree in its physical form, made eternal yet ever changing. Add a leaf, a symbol of a family member, and watch your tree grow with your family.

Each leaf and charm (which are available to order) is movable, allowing you to customise the jewellery you create from your tree.

Create show stopping, mystical necklaces with a myriad of leaves, studded with stars, or be beautifully understated with a bracelet, holding a single acorn, a symbol of your own strength, your own ability to blossom and become something magnificent.

Size : approx 22 cm tall –
The bases will vary in dimensions but approx : 18 cm * 15 cm footprint.

*** This is a very limited edition work ***

*** Other charms in the pictures such as oak leaves, acorns are to illustrate the various looks and combinations. They are available separately within the collection. ***

    Life itselv

    Nothing symbolises life to me like the tree upon which we can see the seasons. A bare tree is a lifeless form but still so full of life and this sculpture truly reflects that. The materials shriek nature in its purest form with the metal being offset by the warmest wood with a pattern that truly cannot be replicated. As always from HG the detail is superb – a piece any of us would be proud to own.

    Mystical, creative and beautiful

    I love how this piece grows and changes with an individuals story. The initial trunk and bare branches seems impenetrable and silent like an old winter tree. As you add each piece to it, it grows to tell a very individual story, the leaves stretching out and multiplying.
    I love this piece and the symbolism behind it. x

    Beautiful! A wonderful idea πŸ™‚

    I love this, it’s a charm bracelet that you don’t have to worry about losing it (something I always worry about lol)
    It’s also somewhere where you could hang any special jewellery which has a sentimental value.
    The fact it’s hand made makes it even more special and as I love Oak trees I already love it πŸ™‚
