Magnolia Grandiflora I
The majestic winter blossoms in soft ivory punctuate the crisp air with their sweet lemony scent. The cup shaped blooms invite us to pause for a visit, to marvel at the form of each layer. The smooth satin of the petals invigorate our sensory, the essence of being in the moment.
A practice in capturing the moment through my hands in hope to imbue the beauty in our everyday life. Like a contoured drawing in space, each line and each curve are expressed in a free form manner from the previous observation.
Wire forming or as quoted by Alexander Calder "Drawing in space" is the main practice of choice, incorporating a natural raw cut black tourmaline and hand poured resin as the base to compliment.
A one of a kind mini sculpture to remind us to take a breath and relish in the moment.
Great for small spaces such as bookshelves, desk, powder table or anywhere that you would like to add a thoughtful charm to your vignette.
Materials include brass, tourmaline, resin and gold pigment.
The sculpture stands at 5" tall. Base is about 3" x 2 1/2"
