About Pine Cone 23551

Hand forged from bronze; this delightful tabletop sculpture of a pine cone is by Floyd Elzinga. The Canadian artist is known for creating unique metal artwork and his series of pinecones are playful, pop art pieces. For Elzinga, the pine cone represents the aggressive nature of seeds. The pinecone is also considered to be a symbol of potential and renewal; a sentiment embraced by an artist who has always had a strong connection to the natural world.

“My art is my forestry … I grew up on a farm and now I make metal seeds and flowers and I'm growing a metal garden." Floyd Elzinga

Elzinga’s 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.
