Bramble is named after the raspberry and blackberry thickets on our property. Although it’s a weed, they have beautiful, white flowers, and go on to produce shiny gems in the form of fruit.
The piece shows the life cycle of buds, flowers, and berries. In nature, they aren’t all produced at the same time; they follow each other. The crops are high priced and desirable, but left to their own devices they turn into a hedge of brambles.
Bramble went in the show Celebrate Agriculture with the Arts in 2015 where it sold, and a second similar one sold as well!
