Bouquet for Julie

Walnut, velvet, found wood knot, polymer clay, horsehair, cow hide, water buffalo hide, beads, rabbit fur, feathers, cast resin. 17" x 17" x 7". 2006.

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.
