Gorgeous Pohutukawa metal sculpture wall art handcrafted in New Zealand from marine grade stainless steel. Suitable to hang inside or out.
Cherished native tree of New Zealand’s rugged coastlines – particularly in the North Island. Known as New Zealand’s Christmas tree because it flowers during this time. The familiar form is captured in stunning detail. Handmade from seven pieces of steel welded together and then heat treated to produce a range of beautiful colours – each piece being individual. Includes hanging loop on the back.
The artist works with marine grade stainless steel so this sculpture may be hung inside or out without concern.
Measures approx. 62cm / 24½ inches wide by 35cm / 13¾ inches tall.
Please note, each piece is handmade and may differ slightly from that pictured. Accessories pictured are not included.
If necessary, please just clean, or dust, with a damp cloth. Do not use any cleaning products as this may damage the sculpture.
About the artist
Steven Doreèn lives in Nelson, New Zealand and is a self-taught metal sculptor. He has been a full-time artist since 2002 when he took over the production of metal sculptures from his partner Kellie who committed to full-time study. He has taken her concepts and technics and perfected them into his own individual style. Steven is a perfectionist when it comes to detail and when required will study each species from scientific record to insure his representation is correct. Not all of Steven’s works are true to life however, with some of his pieces being creatively evolved.
The pieces he makes are highly polished and heat treated to produce a range of beautiful colours. The work is then coated which adds to the shine and protects the metal.
