In a near perfect Saturday morning moment I picked this diminutive brunch of native violets and fern fronds for my new-found Noritake vase. The vase started off life as an ash-tray (yuk) though this seems nearly cruel for such an elegant shapely piece. My idea of luxury is a cupboard full of vases. This piece, with its broad collar and angled body, was from Little Peach in Bangalow, NSW. If you are acquisitive and quick there other one just like it might still there.
The temptation, is of course, to draw the flowers, taken over to the shed for this purpose. The best I can say about this is that I like the shadow, and it was pleasant work.
