Emily Stone Copper Flower Oriental Lily Sculpture

Lily sculpture

My oriental lily is a bold statement of colour, carrying two open flowers and one large bud. The characteristic leaves decorate the straight stem. There is more detail invested here than appears at first glance.

The strong colour is not any sort of surface coating; it is caused by heating the copper to particular temperatures and then quenching. The piece is then lacquered, excluding air, so that the colours will remain as you see them.
