During 2011 I am posting images of things from the natural world that inspire or inform my art. My installations and sculptures are viewable at www.ryksenn.com.

Sept. 9, 2011 Engineering
When I look at this dahlia I imagine rolling up paper to make the cone-like petals.While that would be relatively easy to do, it would be difficult to get the cones shaped and secured in a dome form. Looking closely at flowers makes me appreciate the engineering of botanical objects.
