woodland trillium flowers

Trillium

These drops from the steel yard make the perfect trillium petals. They are pivoted slightly like a pinwheel. The pistil can be anything from the butt of a screw driver, a bearing, or a counter sink bit, just depends. I abstract the leaves using either stainless as elongated ones or fence scrap as short ones. Heights vary 3 to 3 1/2 feet tall.
