Every summer I try to spend some time experimenting with new techniques and styles. These pieces are my takes on the technique I learned from Jounni Seppanan in San Francisco. I used horsetail pinned to a foam base with the pins forming part of the design. I added in ferns and orchids and put the piece in a ceramic square with a mirror finish that works with the silver pin heads. I love the background of the tower of horsetail - this is a versatile piece and many different types of flowers could be used - and I will be trying some more in the days to come.
