Memorial Driftwood Accent – “FALLEN HERO”
Incorporating driftwood personally collected from the shores of the Ottawa River, this is a powerful piece.
Cleaned and lightly sanded, raw, silver sun-bleached, two driftwood finds are forever bonded as ground shelter.
The FALLEN HERO, symbolized by a single POPPY. Two others, twisted with pain and unshed tears, silently mourn.
A pair of patina dragonflies; blood red flowing along the undersides of their wings; creeping almost imperceptibly along the upper edges, representing the effectiveness of pain containment.
Poppy petals – 2-mil copper; hammered; exterior of petals painted Tremclad brand ‘Fire Red’. Flower interiors remain bright copper.
Central organs – Lavastone beading stitched with 28-gauge copper wire.
Stems – Copper wire – 8-gauge
Fern-like Poppy leaves – Copper filigree dragonfly wings recycled from broken Tiffany-Style lampshade. (see photo)
