‘Farmhouse Memories’ Wire Art
As a child the massive sunflowers in the fields and the kitchen garden in my village in India always fascinated me and this is a picture of that memory with wire art, sand and India ink. Its something remembered through the eyes of a 7-8 year old.
I grew up mostly in New Delhi, India and we used to visit our ancestral home in a village called Sonhauli near Khagaria town during holidays. Being a city girl I had not come across sunflowers grown as crops. We had some in our garden but they were little ones. The massive sunflowers in the fields and the kitchen garden in my village were just amazing! They were taller than me and the flowers were bigger than my face! It is a memory that has just stayed with me.
Ever since I made the memories necklace last year I have been thinking of making more pieces reminding me of my lovely memories of India and the wire flower and wire tree sculpture techniques I have learnt proved to be perfect for this wire art picture.
