Terracotta "Woman with a Bowl", roses, lavender, bougainvillea
Rich apricot blooms, exquisite purple-pink roses much tinier, and sprigs of lavender – all flowers from my sister's desert garden – mingle with bougainvillea and dark orange-tree leaves from our orchard. The fragrant bouquet fills the bowl of my terracotta sculpture; with assured dignity she carries the autumn wealth of the garden poised lightly on her head. The light makes stars and streams in long beams through the dark, intricate lattice-work of a handmade screen from India, while under the sculpture's feet, where her long skirts sweep the ground, are the delightfully bright tiles, orange, green, blue, of a small table from Mexico. In these images you are seeing a corner of our home in the desert.
