About Pine Cone 24-257

Inspired by the natural form, colour and texture of real pine cones, Floyd Elzinga has created an iconic series of large sculptures that have found homes in both public venues and private gardens.
Elzinga’s pine cones are made from weathering steel that has been laser cut and pressed to form a three-dimensional curved shape. The finish of this one is a polished silver with flecks of yellow. The Canadian artist prefers to work in metal due to its inherent beauty, durability and malleability. Suitable for indoors or outdoors.

“I am continually surprised and inspired by a new property that the material reveals and a whole new style or body of work results.” Floyd Elzinga
