Garden Hyacinth: flower of spring


When I returned in Taipei, I visited K.T.(minihouse) and asked for a lovely ‘training’--- making a pot of g graceful Hyacinth!

In fact I have admired K.T.’s work for years. After we decided to go back to Taiwan, I called her and asked if I could join her workshops.

I was very lucky and have spent several days with her. She has acquired mastery of sculpture; she is also like simpatico and frank sis! I do like her!

Each petal of Hyacinth, as you can see, is cut with a pair of scissors; K.T. told me it was always better to start with larger scales than the smaller ones. I spent several hours in the course and just finished this pot. But it’s worthy to wait!! :D

So, this week, I started making some Hyacinths at home. All of them are made in air-dried clay (ADC) and in 12th scale. It has been a long time I don’t play with ADC but still love its translucent effect. The diameter of the smallest pot is 8mm and 7mm high. They are darling, non?! :0)



Inspired by Carol, I also made some baskets this week. They are very simple ones but will try someting different with MyFrenchCuisine next week!

   

Bon dimanche!

Your hyacinths are perfectly beautiful! Looking forward to seeing more baskets, too. I'm having a go at weaving also and find it quite challenging.
