Heavy Metal Flower

Have you ever seen a flower this large? League artist Bruna D’Alessandro created this 5ft oxeye daisy out of stainless steel and even engraved an Italian nursery rhyme into its petals!⁠

Titled “I Write You A Flower,” this sculpture was installed in the 132nd Street Block Association Garden in Harlem as part of their 2020 “Encircle” exhibition. Here’s a video showing off the piece in more detail, courtesy of the artist:

D’Alessandro has been studying with The League for over half a decade with a special focus on Metal Sculpture, working extensively with welding masters such as Cliff Dufton and Natsuki Takauji.⁠ She has consistently exhibited in New York City, participating in seven exhibitions over the past year while continuing her arts practice.
