Here’s how Deb describes this work in copper titled ‘Serenity:’  “It’s about finding peace wherever things fall.  The pieces are meant to look like the just fell into the arrangement, but found a peaceful and serene relationship. There’s no front or back — and I guess it could even be turned upside down and still work…. ” 

It works inside out and across the room for me.  Her work is gorgeous.  A delight to shoot.

    Wow, that piece is just beautiful – have seen it in person (and touched it because it begs to be touched). You did an amazing job photographing it and capturing the mood and flow of the piece. Love it. Jan
