The Umbel Series Installation was a temporary installation included in the Environmental Installations exhibit at the UCSC Arboretum in Santa Cruz CA. The saffron colored trail of abstract ceramic flowers is inspired by the folklore of bright yellow mustard flowers leading the way from mission to mission along the Camino Real. The installation is named the Umbel Series due to the umbrella shaped flower structures that inspired the forms.
The installation was about 100′ x 2′ x 3′ and is made up of 230 individual abstract umbel flowers, each flower is approximately 7″x 7″x 8″. Every flower has slight variations in size, color and number of spikes, each one is handmade and unique. The flowers are designed to be placed outdoors and will withstand general weather conditions but must be brought inside during below freezing temperatures to avoid damage. You can choose to purchase only flowers or add on the 2.5′ metal steel stems at no additional cost other than shipping fees.
