Grateful for all of our friends, clients, and supporters on this Thanksgiving Day!
A friend posted about the work of Bianca Chang on Facebook (where else) and I was captivated. I think the most beautiful sculptures are all white….forcing us to focus solely on the texture, forms, and lines. What an INCREDIBLE example! If you can’t tell from the image above - these are hand-cut paper sculptures. Click on the link to see more. Wow.
This project sought to reuse recycled soda bottles as a canopy under which a small park is created. An intriguing environment is created where one can explore the surface qualities of the bottles at eye level. Additionally, this project sought to stimulate creative alternatives for recycling and reusing materials. This project used over 1500 recycled plastic soda bottles.
I just returned from an amazing bus tour organized by the APLD Phoenix district….and I am still dreaming of all the stunning sights. I thought I would share some of the images that I found inspiring. Our first stop was in Palm Springs for a tour of the newly opened Sunnylands gardens. We visited the modern gardens on this trip. I will definitely be back for the tour of the original home and grounds.
We then carried on to Pasadena and hit the Huntington Gardens for two days. The real treat was the three hours that the Director of the Gardens spent with us…discussing all the thought behind preservation decisions and the history of the gardens. We also were able to enter the garden before the general public both days…and were able to truly take in the beauty and serenity of the space. This will be a trip I will never forget! Thank you APLD for bringing these experiences into my life! We are already planning the bus tour for next year!
