Rose Tree Repose

The art nouveau movement inspired the original creation of this piece. A student of the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland, Marion Henderson Wilson, created the tin original that was considerably larger than my copper rendering. After a visit to the Meyer May house in Grand Rapids, I found myself intrigued by the Arts & Crafts movement of the early 20th century. The Glasgow school was part of that movement.
