this leaf called to me one sunny phoenix day on the golf course with my good friend. (the one day a year it happens!) that fine day, i carefully kept track of it, as i would any precious object i stumble upon. after holding onto it for a whole year, unsure of its permanent home, it is now to be housed in this forged silver frame, re-purposed from past projects. it will become a great piece very very soon, the beautiful skeleton and veins encapsulated in resin to be adored in this fragile state for many years to come. gorgeous!
