Artist's Statement
" "
The inspiration for creating my sculpture grew from a lifetime love of trees.
I am in awe of the stately presence and silent majesty they posses. I find the structure of trees to be one of the perfections in nature. With their roots embracing the earth; in winter they show their bones, in spring gentle buds, in summer a canopy of green and in fall a magical kaleidoscope of colors. Beauty, pure beauty.   Sal Villano

Beaded Bonsai Wire Tree Sculpture. 9"wide x 12"high x 7"deep. The tree is made of 18 & 26 solid copper wire. The branches and twigs contain hundreds of clear tiny glass fringe beads. Each glass bead is interwoven into wire giving the structure of the tree a very natural look. The tree is "planted" in a hand painted glossy 6 sided ceramic pot that is decorated, in dark blue, with an ancient Asian village front and back. All is bound together into sand and pebble mixture. The mixture is painted in greens, yellows and whites, using India ink and looks like moss covered earth. When the sculpture is displayed in direct sunlight, or very bright lights, it is ablaze with many colors as it reflects all the colors of the root mound and the copper wire.

Description
Kristallnacht, Tree of Life. Wire tree sculpture. 32"H x 22"W x 29"D. Kristallnacht - "The Night of Broken Glass" was a series of government-sanctioned attacks against the Jewish population of Germany and Austria on November 9-10, 1938. Ninety-six Jews were murdered and 25,000-30,000 were arrested and sent to concentration camps. The damage to property was also very extensive: thousands of synagogues were attacked, with 267 burned to the ground. Thousands of Jewish homes and Jewish owned businesses were burned and destroyed using sledgehammers and axes, leaving most of streets covered with shards of broken glass shimmering in the moonlight -- hence the origin of the name Kristallnacht. Many historians consider this horrible event to be the beginning of the "Final Solution"

Description
Jade Cascade #1. Wire Tree Sculpture with Jade Leaves.    17"wide x 11"deep x 18"high. Wire tree sculpture with 218 genuine Jade leaves of various shapes and sizes. Some of the jade leaves are flat and others have a slight upward turn at the tip. Each leaf is individually wired onto its branch using a unique method developed by Sal Villano expressly for this type of sculpture. There are no holes in any of the leaves so they appear very natural in their position on the end of each twig. The tree is created using 18, 24 and 26 gauge gold color wire. The roots of the tree are bound into a sand and pebble mound that is painted in greens and yellows using India ink to create the image of moss. The sculpture is in a 7" round metallic finished ceramic bowl and is permanently fixed to the dark wood 5 legged elevation base. This sculpture can and should be displayed in direct sunlight since all the coloring and material used are light fast, and will not fade.

Description
Gold Leaf Maple. Wire Tree Sculpture. Overall size is 10"H x 7"W x 7"D. Constructed of, 26 and 28 gauge gold colored wire. The heavier wire is inside the tree for support, and the thinner wire is applied to the surface for texture detail. All the individual leaves on the tree are created by hammering and flattening the tip of each twig wire so that it looks like a thin leaf. The roots of the tree sculpture are bonded onto the base using sea sand and small pebbles. The base is a 6" round dark brown solid wood base. I have created many of these types of trees which have been presented as awards and thank you gifts. It is very easy for you to add a plaque to the wooden base to personalize the sculpture.
