This week’s MotD theme: Fungi Fun

British willow weaver and basketmaker, Cherry Chung of Manchester, created this delightful 1.5m mushroom lamp. How wonderfully creative and perfectly fitting for this week’s theme.

About her art, her web site states:

She was hooked by the direct nature of working some sticks with only her hands into an object which could be functional and aesthetic. The connection with ancient human ancestry is still present in some enduring primeval instinct.

Inspiration for Today

Mother Nature is more than happy to be a model for any of our creative endeavors. We are encouraged to let her inspire us with her natural beauty and design.

Happy Coloring!
