WhenI look out of the window I see yellow taxis.
I'm in the middle of my seasonal pansy-bashing experiments when I make a lot of noise and a small amount of stationery. I learned the fundamentals of pansy hammering from the uber-creative Elizabeth Bunsen.
Anyway, three flowers from the tree pits outside. The yellow pansy, when hammered, just turned into a soggy blob.
Here are some bits and pieces from the roof.
Same thing with the trusty hammer -and a print of a previous pansy. You must use good quality printing paper -Arches for example- so the colors get absorbed.
Larger than life sized!
Much, much larger than life sized with bits of the viola waiting to be removed.
This mess/work of art was created by hammering the flower of a beautiful iris which had fallen off the stem. I would not recommend hammering irises -much too much water and sogginess - but rather fun as a fabric design....
Making stuff runs in the family (all families, I think!) Henry is very serious about drawing and
Gretchen has become a bead maker.
Back to hammering pansies...
