Poison Flower
Poison Flower, Orange Boom-Boom
High fire stoneware and translucent porcelain
approx. 26" wide

The Poison Flowers are hybrids of original sculpted forms, and slip-cast and press-molded objects and textures from nature, which I have combined to suggest a ‘new’ organism. I also think of them as decorative arrangements, very similar to a floral arrangement. Flowers are often used to celebrate important moments of our lives, everything from love to death.

This flower was created using molds from: fruit, corn, pickles, frozen vegetable wedges, waffles, hamburger buns, lace, Rice Chex, peppers, and other snack foods
