Found and Collected

Autumn days are growing shorter. The time has passed much too quickly and I have a few photos to share, starting with this one featuring bittersweet (one of my favorite materials). The inspiration for this arrangement came after reading Dutch floral artist Gerd Verschoor’s
book “Beyond Flowers, Collecting and Arranging Natural Objects”. In this book I found a kindred spirit with things found and collected, and I used that energy to make this piece using all found objects. The bittersweet provided by mother nature, the driftwood from the bay and an old discarded rusted disc came together almost as if they were old friends.
