A Meager Scallop in Bloom

This work started as a handful of harvested Dan loins and Day Lily leaves which i gathered from my own yard. After working the steps to produce a pulp, I hand cast this work on a shell .

The fact the creation is made from paper seems to invite the need to add words to the blooming flower in the shells center. The golden wire allows one to lift out the pearl reliving the words hidden underneath.
