steel flowers

Recently Oakland created a temporary sculpture display in the Uptown area.  This giant flower is by Karen Cusolito who runs the American Steel studios.  Her giant creations are often seen at Burning Man.  This piece is at least 10 feet tall and reaches to the blue skies that appear in the afternoon after the "marine layer" burns off.  Linked to Skywatch Friday.

  7. That is so cool! Like who would even consider doing a dandelion in the first place? That is about the only thing I really miss from Burning Man, the art.

  11. That looks (especially from its leaves) like a dandelion! How fun and creative. How DO people do that sort of thing?? I'm in awe. Wonderful capture!

  12. I see a dandelion reaching to the sky. Hopefully, temporary though it is in this spot, it will be placed in a permanent location for all to enjoy.
