About this piece

 

As I've explained before, the line between "natural" and "artificial" is a thin one. I find it interesting how often we include themes from nature in our most skillfully man-made items (lace flowers, for example) or call something "natural" (like twine) when that rope was harvested, refined, and braided by machines. Isn't it all natural?

 

For fun: Look around you right now and see how many man-made items contain a floral theme. You might be surpised to find it in rugs, on mousepads, upholstery, wallpaper, stationary, glassware, drawer-pulls, light fixtures, flags (fleur de lis?), jewelry, and pretty much all the lace you're likely to see.
