“Dear love, for nothing less than thee
Would I have broke this happy dream;
It was a theme
For reason, much too strong for fantasy,
Therefore thou wak’d’st me wisely; yet
My dream thou brok’st not, but continued’st it.”
The Dream, by John Donne
Trust what you feel.
Everyone has a fantasy in the mind, like a utopia inside their hearts. The hand crafted floral light installation presented the fantasyland of the artist. A garden, full of surreal flowers. Feel it. Is this a world of illusion……?
Inspired by Art Nouveau artefacts, Pamela brings nature into modern spaces with the curving wire art. Flower lanterns were curved by copper wire and resin in a form of bonsai landscape, in order to fit in modern living space. Lantern bonsai retains the shape of natural flowers, but the proportions and colors are surreal, so then creating a small garden that seems to be true and false.
Curving, is an important technique in making traditional crafts. Curving is extensively used in traditional crafts like Ornament wire-art accessories, wire calligraphies – and Chinese knots. By curving, the material can be bent into different curvature and turned into beautiful arcs, can then create ornaments in organic forms, such as flowers and plants.
