Description:
These extraordinary pieces of art were hand forged into a bamboo like foliage. There is a total of three bamboo bunches located at the University Village, in Sacramento, Ca. Individual tubes, with varying lengths, were delicately forged, hammered and welded together to form a bamboo pole. Final color finish was created with a rust patina and clear baked on powder coat. The attached bamboo leaves are CNC cut aluminum and fastened with stainless steel hardware.
