A custom one-of-a-kind sculpture to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. The iconic pine cone and long-needled branch conjures up the pine trees of northern Canada. Constructed entirely by hand of steel, and coated with clear varathane this piece honours the country we are so blessed to be living in. Each needle and pine cone piece is cut and applied individually to create this one-of-a-kind amazingly detailed work. Signed and dated by the artist.

The Artist/Design: Metal Artist Cole Talbot hales from Norfolk County, Ontario, where at just 16 years old, he created his first ironwork piece that would be the start of a previously unthought-of art career. Who knew that the welding shop floor would become his drawing board for each new and fantastic art work? Cole has fused together his love of nature, his years of formal welding training, and his inherent artistic drive to create his unique, one-of-a-kind, custom pieces. When he is not in the shop, Cole kindles his creativity by kayaking, camping, rock climbing or simply driving the country side to see where the dirt roads take him. Cole is quickly making a name for himself in the art world, with his pieces being sold throughout Canada and internationally.
