Have a daisytastic Christmas!

The last of my express orders for Christmas go out today.....but that does not mean a chance to rest. Just catching my breath as just like Santa's little helpers i will be making till the last minute to get orders finished and a bit of a head start on my new stock for January. Next year i will be hitting the ground running with fantastic new designs, more stock in my Etsy shop, an New website and a list of market and retail venues to dish out....... as well as some new exhibition to attend.

I will leave you with these Daisy ring images and wish you all a merry Christmas!

Fading chrysanthemums

Well for my birthday that just past I got mitchel to smooch paint a card for me. I masked a card to his high chair and placed paint in a tray in front of him; with some on the card...... he took great delight in smearing the paint all over, and eating a little (its non toxic!). After the fun of smeared colour i took it away to dry, and then it’s my turn to interpret his painting. It’s like doing a puzzle.

So here are my “fading chrysanthemums”. They are quite poetic and I love them!

Sculptural Grass

The other side of the spectrum in sculptural grass would be these works byMathilde Roussel - Geraudy: "life of grass works", as shown below. I love the sense of time from sown seed to growing wheat grass its an ever changing sculpture, each day a new dimension is added to the work. Although the artist in this case is talking about the cycle of food. There is still a sence of time. This sense of time in nature, reminds me of one of my favourite artist Andy Goldsworthy.








I found these works through a Google search: Grass Sculpture and found it in , blog.gessato.com
