Bonsai are dwarf trees from traditional Japanese art. They are miniaturized through different techniques to make them as real as possible. Artist Matthew Gallop uses wire to reproduce bonsai trees, and it works.
The Metal Bonsai company, headed by Matthew Gollop, specializes in the art of the wire tree and has bonsai as its favorite theme. Inspired by the complexity, beauty, and strength of bonsai trees, however small they are, Matthew Gollop uses multiple strands of wire to replicate the appearance of a bonsai tree.
The idea of making bonsai trees with thin metallic threads arose when Matthew Gollop played with the muscles that are used to hold the champagne cork, then instinctively he began to form a tree.
The company offers you different styles of bonsai. They are available with bright bursts of color or with monochrome finishes but also depending on the type of wire bonsai tree. In addition, you will be able to understand what is the creative process and thus create your own metal trees thanks to the infographic delivered by Matthew Gollop.
