Flower Tower Mini

Flower Tower Mini


Give me an eye, a piece of wire, and a small foundry form and I have a flower. Those three simple ingredients are the start to a personality that naturally unfolds as additional materials are added. In the spirit of Myth Gallery's current theme, Flower Power, these little additions to our garden of curiosities are so delightful to create. They are all a little fierce in their own ways, fighting for their share of the Sun. As we move into the second year of the COVID pandemic, once again I am finding solace in the garden and the delight of flowers. 

This flower is a dreamer. He loves to stay up late at night and pretend he is flying across the sky with the constellations.
