Jan 11, 2010 Stalk

Sometimes I'm caught off guard by the beauty and form of the plants we
cultivate, harvest, and eat. I recently bought brussels sprouts on the
stalk and kept them on the kitchen counter for a few days. I enjoyed
looking at the tightly layered sprouts and how they were attached to
the stem in a spiral pattern, and marveled that the overall form
looked like an odd bumpy bat. I'd love to make a sculpture that
captures the essence this stalk.
