My rose was created for an exhibition at Lovely’s Gallery, Margate, on a theme of ‘Beauty and the Copper Beasties’. The beasts included a giant centipede, made especially for the event. Amongst the ‘beauties’ created was this, my first rose. The rose is often thought of as the archetype of beauty, so – I think it worked.
I was particularly pleased with the contrasting colours of the flower and the leaves.
Can be mounted as seen, in a rustic wood block, planted directly in the ground, or displayed in a vase indoors.
