Floating tulip

I'm so pleased to have this beautiful shot by
Vogue Living's Marcel Aucar to share with you all.
(posted on VL tumblr 19 March

The tulip, 'Last Gasp, after Maria Sibylla Merian c1670'
is finished now, but this photo of the unfinished work, posed with
an exquisitely elegant Shaker style chair, which I rescued from local hard
rubbish, lends the work an even more poignant sense of the ephemeral. 

"It looks like an exotic bird about to alight on the chair back..."
Tim Craker, friend and installation artist
