Those who live close to the land are sensitive to change in seasons, ever hopeful moisture will come for plants and animals turning the corner. I love the time when winter wheat begins to grow in expectation of one day ripening to golden perfection. At such times, nature reminds us there is a reward for nurturing small things. Acrylic with gathered wheat kernels, handmade stone texture and iron oxidized to rust to inspire growth. Sold to a lovely Midwestern family.
