The Art of the Orchid

When thinking about how to capture orchids for Heather's book, I decided to go back to my roots (yes, pun intended).  A few months back, we went to the Art of the Brick exhibit at the ArtScience Museum, and we were amazed at what we saw.   So, I followed Nathan Sawaya's lead and started building an orchid from scratch.  Luckily I had photos I took from the National Orchid Garden to refer to, but I was limited to the colors my girls had in their lego box.  I also had to dismantle some of their structures to find all the pinks.  Shhh, don't tell.  Thanks, Heather, for letting me dig through the Lego box once again.  It felt so natural and peaceful.  Just like an orchid.


  1. Riley! You consistently bend my rules on mediums. LOVE LOVE LOVE this Lego art form.

  2. Wow! I would hang that on my wall. I love the three dimensions, as well.
