Hi, I'm Virginia. Nature nurtures and inspires me.
- I love trees and have planted hundreds. What a boost it is to watch them feast on the sun and grow bigger than me in just a few years. Some even deliver sweet fruit to eat! Do you know trees have extensive social networks underground through which they share food, rear offspring, and care for the diseased? We only just discovered this a few years ago. Amazing! My work is to tell these stories. I write, I speak and I make cast glass sculpture. I cast this pedestal bowl and filled it with individually cast pieces of fruit. All of the fruit came from orchards we have grown over the years. It is titled "Fruit of Our Labour," but all we did was plant, water and weed. The trees, sun and soil did all the heavy lifting.
