botanic dream



A good many years ago as a young man I studied botany and the extraordinary diversity of creation remains as a memory bank of forms as well as those little used terms like whorls and bracts. In an idle moment I thought why not wheel the humble seed head out for all to see as a wonder of the natural world!
I have to confess I have become somewhat extravagant with the shapes and colours as I worked and grew the idea. Quite a nonsense on the face of it - but I am amused and will pursue the idea further and see the upright forms take on a variety of interpretations.
