This past week I journeyed a short distance to view the graduate art thesis exhibition of Heather Davenport and Laura Smith.

Laura Smith’s artwork is beyond words! I love her elegant plant inspired forms and was surprised that everything she did was so LARGE. Hat’s off to Laura for her diligence in her thesis. But enough of me talking, check it out for yourself!

This is Laura’s card from the show, and a selection of her large vase forms (2-3 feet tall each).

Subtle Growth by Laura Smith. Gotta love this set’s Victorian feel.

Fern Study I & II by Laura Smith.

Stay tuned next week for a look at Heather’s inspiring fiber art sculptures and compositions created around the theme of growth.
