This assemblage focuses on spring, the time of renewal, and autumn, the harvest season. The piece features numerous organic forms, including branches, roots, eggs, feathers, acorns, oak leaf pins, and flowers of an hydrangea. Throughout the ages, the egg has symbolized new beginnings, the essence of creation. It has become a fitting symbol of growth and renewal as the chick within breaks out into the world at just the right time. The life cycle begins again.
The oak tree is said to be the tree of life and strength, while the acorn is a symbol of harvest when growth is complete. It appears to be dry, lifeless or dormant in its shell. With a structure waiting to be broken, it relies on the wet earth and then when the conditions are just right, it emerges naturally and the life cycle begins again.
