Silver Flower Collection

The idea of making flowers came during one lovely summer day sitting in the garden. I love the simple shapes. It seems to me that nature makes everything from either circles or squares. (I know some famous artist said there were only three shapes necessary - can't remember who it was). So this was the first series. I call these flowers at dusk. I didn't want them to be just bright silver so I treated them with a patina, but deliberately kept it just dark greyish.

I think my favourite is the wet water lilies in the centre.
