Outside of my shop window, the pink and white blossoms are blowing off of the trees, reminding me of the dynamic nature of spring. Buds, blossoms, seeds pods, baby leaves and grasses are sprouting up, growing and changing quickly. Patches of yellow roadside flowers bloom for a few short weeks and then disappear. During this time, everyday is an opportunity for finding objects of inspiration. I walk and collect...the next day, the next place, I collect more. I have no idea what designs will emerge from these textures and objects. Will petals turn into an earring or will leaves be layered into a pendant? For now, gathering is all I do.
