Martha and Mary Luke Chapter 10 Verse 34...

Vegetable by-products!


Martha is made of dried apple peelings Pink Lady apples axtualy You'd be surprised how different each type of apple peeling is when it's dried. Mary is dried parsnip peelings.

Oriental figure

This is made of dried lemon skins. Lovely shapes but some of them get a bit discoloured - haven't worked out why yet. I might try a very thin layer of gold on the lower three segments.

Sea creature

Possibly my favourite. Critically observant but reclusive! Parsnip peelings, with parsnip tops for eyes.

This is a rotten tree trunk in Richmond Park in an attempt at the style of Edward Borden.


Another Richmond Park tree

And a figment of my imagination.

Brightening up the winter garden and watching the effects of the weather

Wednesday, 19 December 2018

End of the vegetable line for this year.

I've put the last ones out in the garden to see what effect the weather will have on them.

Here are the apple peelings. Wonderful colours! I've placed them in  a tree.

I've joined all the parsnip peelings together and sprayed them silver They are resting by the pond.

The corn dollies from the summer are already in decline. Brown and crumbling.

Ceramics now!

Well-sort of - I broke a plate. It smashed into some interesting shapes  on the kitchen floor.

And now it's my homage to Sydney Opera House

Not the Final Vegetable Sculptures -here are some more!

These three are made from dried baby carrots.
A silver emblem
A golden demon   

And a Fleur de Lis which I've place outside on the shed door!
 I've also made some corn  patterns which are now on the garden gate,
but they probably wont last through the winter months.

Two sunbursts

and a shooting star.
