Letters of Adornment
Two of the pieces that I made for this exhibition belong to my botanical collection. Kalanchoe was chosen to represent the letter "K". This sturdy succulent plant has thick, shiny, scalloped leaves. I appreciate its quiet beauty, the fact that it doesn't scream for much care or attention and can grow very well on its own.
