“The movement of the leaves inspired me during our time at the Lyman Plant House. When sculpting with paper, I found the similarities between the actual leaves and the paper leaves interesting. ”

Altered branch from the Smith Arboretum, reed, and wire

“When we visited the Lyman Plant house, Jimmy and Lily drew our attention to the many kinds of leaves and their shapes. I immediately noticed and was drawn to the heart-shaped or cordate leaves because of the surprising ‘perfection’ I saw there. I created a reed sculpture that mimics that shape in order.”
