Turning Pointe

Artist’s Private Collection

Turning Pointe is about opening and release. It is based on the form of a pod, twisting and splitting, but unlike a plant pod that hangs, this form rises from the earth like a dancer en pointe. Turning Pointe tries to capture the energy and ecstasy of released fertility. The pod appears empty not because it is without seed, but instead to represent the invisible yet fecund seeds of creativity within us.

Shown by Mahoney’s Garden Center in the New England Flower Show 2004
