About this time last year, I made these felt and fabric flower bouquets in collaboration with Emma Erickson, who was working for me at the time. We used fabric from Emma’s Spring 2011 fashion line, vintage buttons and glass beads, and several kinds of felt flowers made in my studio.
I decided to name them simple names, and offer them up because they are so different from anything I’ve done in the past. Besides the fabric elements, each handle is 12” long and when you hold one in your hands, it feels like brandishing a magic wand. They’re top-heavy, and the different levels and precious vintage beads and buttons in each one offer a million places for your eye to land. They’re all similar in construction, but very different in color. Enjoy.
