Poison Flower
Poison Flower, Feral Poison (detail of piece illuminated)

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: water moccasin, rattlesnake, rooster comb, flowers, leaves, berries, garfish skin, turtle, bananas, corn, and the upper palate of a wild boar
