New Year 2014
For my card this year I used Mum, a carved mold based on one used to make formal Japanese confectionery. It is, of course, a wish for a bloomin' great year to come, but it's also a reminder to myself that when it comes to making flowers, shadow is as much a part of the recipe as sunlight. That's exactly the kind of thing I have to tell myself when it's high noon on a Seattle winter day and I can't see my hand in front of my face without turning on all of the lights.
