In my world of beyond bunnies, art in the garden that is better than a concrete bunny, the Sculpture in the Garden 21st annual garden art show at the NC Botanical Garden spoke to me – loudly!
If I was willing to part with $3,200, she would be mine.
Here is what the artist, Tinka Jordy from Hillsborough, NC says about her work. “I am interested in reflecting the human condition in relationship with other life, in all its fragility yet, incredible perseverance.
The surface of the sculpture is full of cracks, fissures and imperfections that express the earth, the passing of time, our mortality, endurance, and the stresses of life, both physical and emotional. I choose to work in clay as it [is] the one material, that if I listen closely, communicates these sentiments so beautifully.”
She is about my height and size and our crackling is about the same…perhaps, that is what has drawn me in. Not sure the reason, other than her pure beauty…I have just the place for you in my garden.
