Where does mud come from? From dancing in the rain
I prefer not to drape fabric over or hide my designs behind a screen before a demonstration. Instead I create a "diversion" that will capture the audience
For this demonstration I draped beaded copper wire in long garlands from wire covered with willow, down the wreath with "mud" proverbs from all over the world.
I tied the wires onto a curled wire covered in rolled willow to create a proverbs wire. This way I could remove the willow wire with all the dangling "raindrops" and mud proverbs easily, all at once, just as the music starts and I start to demonstrate my design.
For this design I also covered my test tubes and dressed the plant and wire stand with willow to tie the details.
As back ground sound (while the audience entered and settled) I played a recording of thunder and rain to create the impression that the beads are tiny drops of water running down the wood onto the ground creating…. Mud… glorious puddles of mud… During the demonstration I played whimsical music that makes you want to dance in the rain. After the demonstration I again played the sounds of rain.
This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture
design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for
floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift
packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle
projects arranged in between.
Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and
photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another
