#101 "Daisy"

"Daisy, Daisy/Give me your answer do/I'm half crazy/all for the love of you". So the lyrics of the 1892 Harry Darce song go. We were so in love with the way this lady turned out that we also named her “Daisy”, which also happens to be the nickname of my Grandmother.

Our “Daisy” was born in 2010 right here in Virginia. She has a genealogy of different trees. Her body is Birds Eye Maple that was first turned and then flipped inside out. The bottom half of her body is slightly dyed a soft green. The upper part of her torso has four hand carved Cocobolo buttons. Her head is a smooth, rich Cocobolo also. The hat that sits askew on her head is hand carved Yellow Heart. From any angle she is pure pleasure to look at, like the Mona Lisa, simply art. I have posted in the Studio Gallery a side view of her.

Daisy would make a most memorable Mother’s Day gift but keep in mind like your Mother there is only one Daisy. Until next time, create your day.
