Artist Cynthia Tinapple toyed with Mother Nature this week. When she found a beautiful bunch of dried pussy willow branches at the Worthington Farmers Market, she couldn’t help but consider what would happen if she replaced the fuzzy blooms with her own colorful ones.
She fired hundreds of bits of polymer patterns and colors and attached them to the wood with hot glue. Voila! Take that, Mother Nature!
The spring bouquet of poly willows is on display in the gallery. (The turned box elder vase was created by Cynthia’s husband, Blair Davis.)
