Snow Flower Garden?

pixie_louDecember 27, 2011

A local x-c ski club hosts a series of Open Houses every February. The flyer for this year says:

This year there will be an outdoor art exhibit by member xxxxxx, a writer and artist. "I have created gigantic 'snow-flowers' out of wire and netting and plan to create "a snow flower garden" on the grounds."

I'm really anxious to see that these are all about. Any one have any ideas what I can expect to see?

Wire & netting plus clear little lights like those used on Christmas decorations would be what I would think he was going to do but he may have a great idea, completely different! Is this artist talented? I was once trying to find out who did a drawing I have & located a person with same name on Internet. She thought she was a great artist & I looked at some of her work. A large plain wood looking chair in a tiny room is not art in my book. A small room with huge wallpaper looking wall- big ugly flowers & rest of tiny room bare- thought perhaps person had mental problems- I left her message but she never answered me. Drawing I have is of Alaskan dogs getting ready for the big race & beautifully done. Art can be beautiful or weird or whatever person wants to call art. Hope the flowers are lovely & done well! Jan

It would be great if you have an opportunity to take and post some pictures. I'd be interested in seeing the what a snow flower garden looks like.

Ooooo... this sounds very interesting!!!

Interesting enough that it got me Googleing! LOL
All I could find was the ones on the photo img page really...
made those long ago, but I'm sure this artist added a new twist.
Please post some pics!

The image page also reminded me of the beaded wire flowers from so long ago, those would certainly make for some boootiful garden eye candy!

Here is a link that might be useful: wire mesh flowers

We had our first real snowstorm of the season today. The open houses are in February, but we are planning on going to breakfast at the ski club next Saturday. I'm hoping the snow flowers are installed next week. I plan on bringing my camera.
