...spherical objects! Wink Wandering around the gardens near to the house in Charlecote Park I came across this artwork entitled 'Willow Alliums'. These willow and wire spherical sculptures supported on mild steel rods are made by Rachel Carter, and represent Alliums, a type of flowering or ornamental onion. You can buy them (not these actual ones!) and are made to order - they're a snip at £200 each…Smile

Not really my scene, Trev, but the idea is good, and of course you have captured them so well. Think I'd rather put my £200 to better use Wink Carol

V1 combined with your title made me giggle.

In my more serious artistic moments (or was it drunken ones) I have been known to create similar art pieces from tea stirrers nicked from motorway service stations and shredded final demands. I believe that these are known as 'found objects' in the art world. They are perfect for the smaller garden and an absolute bargain at only twenty quid each!

£200.00 worth every penny Trev! I can see all the wealthy pensioners in line to buy these (I DO NOT THINK), excellent photographic material and fine processing!

Trev.

The willow branches themselves are expensive to buy - I worked a basket one year with them.

Love the full picture in v1 showing the whole art display, but you know me, I like to go in for a closer view, so v2 is my preference.

Looks like my spaghetti after I have cooked it according to the instructions on the packet, Trev!Sad

V2 for me, because of the more detailed look at that intricate work.

I'd rather buy heating oil with any spare money ! The real purple Alliums are much cheaper, easy to grow & far nicer.xxx
