Bouquet for Jake

Walnut, velvet, painted ceramic, taxidermied starling, deer antler, found wood, moss, flocking, miniature deer, pheasant feathers, pine cones, glass beads, fabric, polymer clay, pigskin stretched over plaster, rabbit fur. 21" x 21" x 8". 2005.

These wall pieces are opulent collages of contrasting forms, materials, and scale. Hybrids of funeral garlands, recreational arts of the 1870s (and 1970s), and natural history displays, they are each dedicated to a significant person in my personal life.
