this is a piece that i entitled "stamen" - it is an interpretation of the pollen bearing organ of a flower -- composed of a granite base,with a tower arising from the base made of hardware cloth that has been knotted with a carpet warp design - over that hemp cord has been knotted and tipped with handmade paper -- wrapped element extends from the sides and end with the paper from a garlic bloom thus creating the illusion of both male and female organs to ensure pollination -- it is topped with a dried seed pod embellished with glass bead - i am including both a full view as well as a detail for your viewing pleasure
