SILK SCULPTURE CITY BOUQUET SERIES

An idea has been swirling around in my head lately for a new pet project. Making these bouquets out of various silk fabrics is something that has been a great exploration of techniques for me. So I want to announce that I am planning on designing a very special series of one of a kind bouquets that are inspired by iconic cities. I asked for your help on Facebook and Twitter for inspirational cities and you really delivered, thank you so much! Choosing which ones to attempt will be difficult but I can tell you that the first bouquet choice is easy for me and will be...


Seattle! This city holds many memories for me so I feel it is only fitting that it's the first one. I will be visiting Seattle again very soon for fun... no, I mean research and work. My plan is to complete one of these bouquets a month with detailed blog posts about why I chose the colors and shapes that will be featured in these pieces of silk sculpture. Also, I will be tagging all of my bouquets as "silk sculpture bouquets" so they can be found easier. I do hope that you will check in on my progress and let me know what you think. Each new city will be announced when I unveil a completed bouquet. Now let's see what I can do.
