First Georgia Mandala

Silverware, tangerine, grapes, flowers, ferns, shells

Saint Simons Island, Georgia

April 2020

My first mandala was made with materials I found in our rented condo in Saint Simon’s Island. I laid out some spoons and forks to create a circular shape. Found a tangerine and some grapes in the refrigerator for the center. Went outside onto our little porch and OMG what beautiful options there were just outside our door. Clipped some ferns, picked up some blossoms and added them to the silverware. I used some shells that I had collected at the beach and placed in a box to take home. Nestled them in the curve of the spoons. It was so satisfying and so beautiful. So immediate. I fell in love with this process.
