Introduction

This time around we wanted to do something very different. Deciding to do a series of pieces that focuses on the subject of life and death and returning to the earth. We wanted to reclaim our connection to the wilderness. Both of us were raised in rural Canada, when we moved into the city it was interesting to see what a disconnect there was forsome people who hadn’t been raised around nature. Obviously thats not all people as we have a few friends who are living in cities but are avid campers like us. In a way this series is a way for us to touch on this very different aspect of who we are.

To start the series off we went with an animal that we had both experienced the loss of almost a way to commemorate our feline friends. Titled Curiosity killed the cat. The biggest part of this layout is the usage of the flowers. They were intended to look like bouquets something that was purposefully arranged. All the flowers used in the arrangement are traditionally associated with funerals in North America. These flowers include Orchids, Gladioli, and Chrysanthemums, and then the traditional filler of ferns like plants.

For this one, we changed gears and went with an animal that would match a witchy theme like a cat, the goat. Titled A wolf in sheep's clothing we took a different approach was taken to the flowers the bouquet style layout was used again, but the flowers changed to a more wild flower selection since those would be found in fields and in areas that goats would live. The flowers picked were Gentian, Aster and Ferns.  The chrysanthemums were kept in the design to connect the pieces together.
