About the artist - Ron Headings
Ron, 59, began creating wire trees as a teenager in Kansas. Inspired by his love of horticulture and the coaching of a local county extension agent, Ron has refined his work with wire and rock over the years.
These trees are like people, the forest like humanity.
They come in an infinite number of colors, shapes, and sizes, each one beautiful in its own way. The trees, like people, are shaped by their genetic structure and by the environment in which they live.
Trees are created as a certain species with a variety of characteristics. Then they are changed by the locations in which they live, the amount of water and nutrients they receive, and the impact of wind and weather.
