Suburban Fine Arts Center Exhibit Pictures - 2 - 12 July, 2005
I have always been fascinated by arbors and trellises. Their
delicate lattice work covered with grapes, roses, clematis and other
flowering plants are, to me, visual works of art.
One arbor in particular stands out in my
mind, and that is the one that covers the walkway outside the visitor’s
center at the
As the inspiration for this exhibit is
something that blooms. I decided to create a wearable arbor. Sheer organza
supports my arbor, which has lattice strips woven from crisscrossed satin
ribbon. Delicate roses, violets and leaves, cut from fabrics, “climb”
my lattice work. Small seed beads were added to the centers on many of the
flowers for accent. At last, I have my own wearable rose arbor!
