Water Jet Cut Metal Sculpture by Art Glass and Metal Studio

I was commissioned to create a sculpture of a Japanese cherry tree (Sakura tree) to hang in the courtyard of a beautiful Spanish home in the Mission Hills area of San Diego.

The sculpture is water jet cut from a sheet of steel based on a hand drawn design that I created. It is detailed in positive and negative shapes so that the design breaks out of the confines of the rectangular metal central piece. I then applied a Japanese Brown Patina to the metal to give it a wonderful brown two tone luster and color. The piece stands off of the wall by 3 inches to allow LED lights to “wash” the wall behind it.

To accentuate the piece even further, Iinstalled RGBW LED lights strategically positioned on the back side of the metal, and these can be remotely controlled to change colors from white, yellow, blue, green, aqua, or a combination of all. Although I predominately work in the medium of art glass, I have done many projects in metal such as this “Sakura Metal Sculpture”.
