My Backyard Needs A Sculpture

Posted by Dani on September 2, 2012

Does yours?

I am in love with Floyd Elzinga’s giant pinecone sculptures. They are just gorgeous. I have kept my eye on his work over the years, and fell in love with it again this year at The Artist Project. I already have one of his giant metal daisies, which I received from the hubby for my 40th, and a tiny daisy I keep in the front garden. But his pinecones keep calling my name.

I love the idea of art scattered throughout my garden, and I’m hoping to be able to add a few pieces over the next few years. Mike Myers’ gorgeous Indian goddess and Floyd’s daisies need a new friend, and I think the pinecone would fit into the group quite nicely. I even have a pedestal for it to call home. We took down a giant maple a few years ago, and when I found out the price of stump removal is about the same as the price of a pinecone, the right decision was obvious. So the stump is sitting there waiting for its pinecone to show up.

In the meantime I’ll have to be satisfied with the small but lethal pinecones the squirrels keep throwing at me from the trees.

Here’s one of these beauties on display at Cedar Ridge Studio Gallery.

  1. I love those sculptures too! I remember seeing them at the Artist Project, but were they also at the One of a kind Show?
    I hope you get one!

      I don’t remember seeing him at the OOAK, but I have seen him at the city hall show in July. The pinecone is definitely on my list, but sadly behind quite a few other “necessities” 🙁

  2. Well…until then…I can share some of my pinecones that the squirrels keep throwing at me IN THE TREEHOUSE from the trees. LOL. Little buggers.
    Great to hear you had a PEI trip. Next time…take me , take me !!!
    Big hugs to the sista’sssss

      Lynn!!! Maybe we should get our squirrels together. If your burly country squirrels find my yuppie city squirrels kinda hot, maybe they can get busy making squirrel babies somewhere half way between here and there and quit with the pinecone throwing. We need to drink some wine and think this through. xo.

      • Good idea Dani !
        Those squirrels can make babies in OTHER places. LOL. It wouldn’t be so bad, if they didn’t stare me down while throwing pine cones from the treehouse porch. I have nervy squirrels. *_*. How about you?
        I think we can solve all this with a nice bottle of wine and some water balloons.
