Reminiscent of the wildflowers that line local trails, this artwork was inspired by clusters of flowering yellow fennel growing alongside of Alameda Creek.
This installation includes about 900 mouth-blown glass spheres in colors varying from yellowish green, bright yellow, and golden topaz. The floral spheres are mounted on flower clusters made of steel.
