Roger Williams Park Botanical Garden had a great exhibit, Ceramica Botanica, featuring various sized ceramic art from a gigantic Manscape to often difficult to locate gnomes in between plants. Jan and I visited the exhibit last Friday and managed to see it a few days before it closed.
The largest piece was Manscape, a gigantic ceramic piece covered with nature as if he was the Father Nature. In front of that was an extensive installation Amphitrite with a mermaid offering water in a shell to the little pony. On the pony was a little girl with a flower in hand and a bird on her shoulder. In the other room, large objects hanging from the rafters resembled giant pollens, thus I named them. Along with these large and highly visible pieces, there were many medium-sized installations, small pieces scattered in between flowers sometimes easily missed.
It was like a dreamscape from fairy tales. For those of you who missed it, here are some views from the exhibit and surroundings that captured our attention. The first 12 are Jan’s photographs.
