The Fiery Flower

Mixed-Media Basket

Created by Toni Best
Southern pine needles coiled with C-Lon thread on a gourd painted with alcohol inks. The floating coils which are not entirely attached to the previous coils give the illusion of petals moving in the wind. The gourd is attached to a dyed wooden base. The flames in the flower are portrayed by the movement of the floating coils and the interior colors of the gourd.
