Plants are about math. Specifically, in their growth, they improvise on the mathematical principles programmed into their DNA, rooting, climbing, or budding as abundantly as their surroundings will allow. When I consider the complex processes that give rise to a leaf, fruit, or flower, I feel outrageously wealthy to encounter such wonders. At the same time, I feel sheepish over the elation that I experience, and so I aim for an element of humor—gentle self-mocking?—in these portraits of botanical phenomena, sometimes accompanied by the vessels or textiles that I find among my own modest personal treasures.
