The Branch Studio Steel Spheres
Branch Steel Spheres are available in both strap steel and rod steel. The 5.5' diameter strap steel sphere is fabricated from HPRO- hot rolled, pickled and oiled steel. The straps are 3/4" wide, and 1/8" thick. The straps are welded at the main axes, and then secured by hand with over 400 3/16" steel rivets at every juncture. The smaller spheres are fabricated from 1/2" wide by 3/4" thick steel, and riveted with 1/8" steel rivets. These spheres are as close to perfectly spherical as we can make them. Our galvanized and patinated finish is as close to rust proof, weather proof, and maintenance free as any finish we have ever seen on steel garden ornament.
