“Fallen Daisies” Alabaster, Mauve Soapstone, and Butterscotch Onyx on Gray Granite
with many, many gemstones of various kinds
Daisies, as beautiful as they are, grow old every year. They freeze and eventually fall to the ground. Four of these Daisies — like the Daisies of Nature — fell down, but on the floor of my studio! Yet rather than rotting, I thought, they remain beautiful and will most certainly last an entire lifetime. The other two Daisy blossoms, as I was completing them, fell prey to my uncontrollable hands. So, in a sense, they fell also. When I began to throw them away I hesitated because they looked so beautiful. So, I laid them on this gray stone and thought they would look more beautiful with clusters of gemstone nuggets in their centers. And I created this artistic piece you see here. It by far is one of my favorites.
Happen-chance is the work of God — who as you know, through the work of Mother Nature. created these stones. Then I, with the mysterious suggestions of the Prime Creator of our immense infinite eternal Universe, created this Half Dozen Stone Flower Sculpture.
It is the beauty of failure!
