The way I ship my tree sculpture is by using a "box within a box". For example, if the sculpture is 8" x 8" x 8", I wire the tree onto the inside bottom of a box that is a least 10" x 10" x 10". The tree sculpture is secured into the center on the bottom of this inner box so that none of the branches ever touch any of the sides or inside top of this box. The inner box is then sealed and put into another larger outer box and bubble wrap is placed around the sides, top and bottom of the box with the tree sculpture in it. I have been told by some of my customers that boxes have arrived upside down and battered, however, due to the cushioning around all the sides of the inner box, the sculpture arrives safe and sound. I have shipped thousands of tree sculptures, as far away as Japan and India, and I have never had any problems or any sculpture returned or damaged. Insurance is included in the shipping costs.

MY NEW BOOK...
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. 138 pages, 8.5" X 11" 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.
