As you have probably gathered, there was a sculpture exhibition in the gardens of the Duin en Kruidsberg hotel. I couldn't find out anything about the two previous exhibits, but this one is by Mariska Toetenel - you can read a little more about her here

very different kind of artwork

probably not what they were going for, but to me it looks like a grave marker with flowers laid on top
Tom Wilson: Now that you mention it, Sherri, it does rather!

D'accord avec Sherry, ce n'est pas très gai.
Tom Wilson: Oui, c'est vrai, Martine
This is just wonderful, - and your photo is lovely!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth.

A woman of real talent, I'd say Tom
Tom Wilson: The delicate nature of the material she works in is interesting, Chris.

Rather a large bunch of flowers for someone to carry home. Do you know wheat the material was?
Tom Wilson: From her Website: "The constructions are made of bamboo and reed, strengthened with paper and/or papier-mâché. Pure, light and fairy like at the same time. The transparent forms are fixed as if in the middle of their movement. Constructions finished off with synthetic resin and paint, can be placed outside."

It gives a sense of a memorial Tom.
Tom Wilson: Yes, as Sherri and Martine have pointed out - it hadn't occurred to me when I saw, but it does have that character.
I rather like this. I had a look at the link and there is a warmth to her and her work
Tom Wilson: Yes, I agree - the materials she uses are interesting too.
It might be smewhat strange but I quite like it.

Sadly still no response to my four SC internal system problem reports and three emails regarding the problem with my blog, I can only hope it is because they are on holiday, it is frustrating not being able to do virtually anything at all.
She's certainly got tallent
Sure do like this sculpture in that I recently brought flowers to a burial done up with a neutral twine.
