This book is the result of more than three years of work. My inspiration for writing my third book on the subject of creating wire trees and other pieces using wire, came to me while showing my work at many art and craft shows, and in art galleries. Interested people would ask me how I got started, and, some people, who were really interested in my work, said I should write a book showing how I create my tree sculpture. I have taken great care in creating this third book, not only adding many more different types of sculpture, but also adding many extras I think the reader will find very helpful. I not only explain and illustrate for you, how to create each piece, I also show or explain how to use a basic item to create many more variations of each item. This book contains 138 pages with over 400 photos and illustrations. Plus, based on my over 30 years of creating and showing my work, I have added many pages I have called ”Extras”. These extras will help you with many different topics, such as: Photography, Pricing your work, Shipping your work, Accepting commissions, Attending art and craft shows, Consigning your work, and many more. You can view all my tree sculpture in full color at: www.salvillano.comThe inspiration for creating my sculpture grew from a lifetime love of trees. I am in awe of the stately presence and silent majesty they posses. I find the structure of trees to be one of the perfections in nature. With their roots embracing the earth; in winter they show their bones, in spring gentle buds, in summer a canopy of green and in fall a magical kaleidoscope of colors. Beauty, pure beauty.
