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.
