The Branch Studio Derrick Tuteur
The Branch Studio manufactures garden ornament, structures and containers in steel. These welded steel topiary forms, or tuteurs, are hot dip galvanized in a bath of molten zinc, and further finished with their signature patina – giving each piece the color and texture of lead. This finish is the closest to rustproof and maintenance free of any finish we have ever seen on steel garden ornament. Designed by the Branch Studio head of fabrication, Buck Moffat, these steel topiary forms are large and stately enough to organize an entire garden. The steel prongs can be pushed into the ground, or into the soil in a container. They are sized to fit perfectly in the Branch Studio containers that measure 26″ by 26″ by 27″ tall.
overall height 134 inches, height of steel prongs 18″ (making the actual form 115″ tall)
dimensions at the bottom rim 25″ by 25″ note: the four insertion prongs are 22 5/8 inches apart
