30 x 24 x 18 in.

collected – connected
gathered – gleaned
recycled – reordered
residual – renewal
inspiration – expiration …as simple and as complex as breathing in, breathing out, but pausing to wonder.

It was pointed out to me that gardening is a developmental stage. Until one is ready for it, the magic of the process isn’t there. These pieces are an extension of that process. Made from prunings of my own and friends’ gardens, there’s a collection and selection process. The end result is not only about sticks and pulp; it’s also about water and gravity. Science explains the process of hydrogen bonding that holds sticks and pulp together. Art explains the magic.
