Canadian sculptor Floyd Elzinga finds inspiration for his iconic imagery in nature. From his studio on the rugged Niagara escarpment, he creates beautiful sculptures using natural forms—trees, the maple leaf and pine cones. This new series of pine cones are superbly detailed, and hand forged from bronze. The polished finish lends an elegance to these tabletop pieces.
“The natural world is fundamentally my inspiration, and it is strongly reflected in my subject matter.” Floyd Elzinga
His pinecone sculptures have been featured as part of Toronto’s Scotiabank Nuit Blanche celebration of contemporary art, and his work is held in collections across Ontario and in the US. Elzinga received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax, NS.
