About Pine Cone 22-440

Canadian sculptor Floyd Elzinga’s work merges pop art with iconic imagery from the land. Known for his indoor and outdoor pinecones, this large piece is hand forged from weathering steel so it has a natural rust patina. Elzinga values the pinecone as an impressive seed that historically has survived nature’s challenges. His pinecones cleverly balance an industrial material with a natural form. One in a series.

“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.
