As part of his Copper Clad Cedar Collection, this one of a kind Biomorphic form by Bill Anson is a wonderful example of his mixed media work utilizing cedar and copper. The sculpture is made with a large piece of cedar that was shaped then wrapped with panels of copper. The panels were painstakingly nailed into the cedar with copper nails no further apart than 1 inch. It boasts a height of 70″ and a diameter of 40″. This sculpture would surely be a topic of conversation and a wonderful addition to any art collection.
