Sculptor Kevin Iris has been making these tree sculptures for more than 23 years. The beauty of these trees is the result of hundreds of hours spent bending and twisting aluminium alloy wire.

Iris says: “I average about 26 leaves per strand so I have about 10,062 leaves up there on the top. This [22-inch wide] tree took about 450 hours or so of hands on twisting wire time over four months.”

In contrast to an earlier post of miniature bonsai trees these bigger and more impressive trees certainly pack more of the wow factor.
