This wall hanging is a rendition of the Peace Sign with a flower in the middle. I made this for my niece who at 6 years-old once said to me: “Uncle, do you know what I want for my birthday?” and I, expecting to hear about the latest toy on the market, said “What?” and she said “One of your art pieces. I don’t care what it is, it can be anything. I just want one of your art pieces.” How could I say no! So, knowing that she and her sister love peace signs, I made this for her 7th birthday. Now I’ll need to figure out what I’m going to make her sister’s birthday. 🙂
The Peace Sign is hand-formed from reclaimed T-304 16 Gauge stainless steel and the flower is made from reclaimed 18 gauge copper, and it measures 11” in diameter, 1-1/2” in depth. The piece is welded together using the Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding process. Similar pieces can be made and personalized with a different center or without an item in the center.
The Peace Sign and similar wall hangings are suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
