With a fake botanical name meaning literally "Garland of Brass", this piece is designed in modular form, with the intention of forming a semi-circular ring of 5 elements on the ground - but there's no reason why a single (low-cost) element cannot be displayed on it's own (outdoors or in); or why a larger work cannot be built up using additional elements. Each element is supplied with a stainless steel rod, allowing it be supported in the ground, or in a pot filled with earth or stones.

Consequently, this piece can be purchased as a single element; or as a group of 5 or more (with appropriate "bulk discount"!); or in any desired group size....

So far, there are two styles of element: a single "flower" on a twisted copper stem; and a single flower sporting a smaller "sub-flower" extending upwards and to one side. "Garlands" can be formed from any number and combination of elements, but the initial suggestion is to use 4 simple elements with a 5th sub-flower-equipped element positioned between the others.

Materials: copper & brass
Dimensions: Each element: 17" x 5" x 5" (48cm x 13cm x 13cm)
Dimensions: Semi-circular ring of 5: 17" x 28" x 16" (48cm x 71cm x 41cm) approximately
Weight: Per element: 1lb (0.5kg)
