Most of the art about flowers is by painters, in thrall to color. Sculptors see beyond color to see the beautiful forms and shapes of plants.
Ruth wrote me and said "I love studying nature and plant forms for my work. Just moved onto studying pollination and co habitation as we seem to be loosing our bees in the UK at the moment thanks to the lack of wildflowers so always good to draw attention to issues."
Ruth Moilliet sculpture is so engaging because it has a child's sense of perspective and magic and a master's sense of proportion and craft. To view her website, click here
She sent this photo of her recent work called Pollination Sphere.
