Sculpture and Wreaths

Wreath by Patrick Gracewood
 Here are some wreaths I made of apple and red twig dogwood. The subtle colors of the apple prunings, murkey greens and umbers are very beautiful with wrapped and contrasted with each other.
Redtwig Dogwood.

This red one was a demonstration wreath. It was hard to teach and craft at the same time. While the process is simple, it does require concentration. Loose that and it shows in the work.

We had a surprise snowfall last night. Love the snow cap!
I've used several wreaths here to hide the support post of the sculpture base. These unbroken circles give weight to the base and help remind that everything is related and interlinked.
