Venus Flytrap


Flame Mild Steel

70″ H x 45″ W x 40″ D

The Venus Flytrap sculpture is about 6 feet tall and weighs about 400 lbs. The metal stems are made from forged 1.5″; solid rod.  The flytraps are made from 3/16″ steel plate. In addition to the sculpture, the artists created a planter at the base of the sculpture, so we may add plants such as flowers and ornamental grasses.  The planter is made from recycled wood and metal recovered after Hurricane Florence.

The garden plants (Speedwell, Creeping Jenny, Butterfly Bush and Ferns) will come with the purchase of the sculpture.


This piece is a commission made possible by the Re-3 Grant.

The art was commissioned by Art in Bloom Gallery thanks to an Re-3 grant coordinated by Wilmington Downtown Incorporated (WDI) and funded by businesses and individuals.

Re-3 stands for re-stock, re-open, and re-cover. Re-3 made grants of up to $3,000 to help Downtown Wilmington businesses and entrepreneurs add inventory, stay open, and recover from the economic turmoil caused by COVID-19.  Thank you to Re-3 grant donors
