Another Flower blooms

Last night I finished another Bottle Tree Flower. The sculpture is traveling to Kentucky this weekend to its new garden home. This Flower stands a bit over seven feet tall and has spots for 20 colorful bottles. The Flower head is made from an old metal wheel (maybe from a wheelbarrow?) and adorned with cut metal petals and a glass center. I used a big thick washer to connect it to the stem. Here are a couple shots of the piece in progress and finished. Oh, and if you see a Hummer rolling down the interstate toward Kentucky, look for this Bottle Flower sprouting from the roof!
