April draws inspiration for her bespoke sculptures from the plentiful bounty created by Mother Nature, and this freestanding sculpture ‘Barnacle Tree’ is a reflection of exactly that. April’s client, a collector of museum-quality art and artifacts, asked her to create something amazing for him with complete artistic freedom. Originally designed for a location in a guest bath, the client thought the idea so beautiful he decided to place it in a prominent corner of the open floor plan dining room where he could see it every day.
Using hundreds of her classic peaz shapes, April added LED lighting inside the sculpture to illuminate the rich depth of the sultry color, making it comes alive in a way it never would if lit from the exterior. The LED is on a dimmer so the client has the ultimate ability to adjust the lighting to fit his needs. Color has the power to transform spaces, and this bold copper ruby hue gives a luxurious, rich feel to the home.
