Shades of Autumn – Exhibiting at Royal Horticultural Society Show – Oct 2016

I am excited to announce that The Royal Horticultural Society has accepted my application to exhibit at the Shades of Autumn Show, October 28-29th 2016 in London!

I will be showing my floral art works in the form of prints, books, and paintings. You may have seen some of these works being posted over the last year on my Facebook page along with my recently completed book, “Becoming” (shown below). The book features images from my British Garden series which recently won a Silver at PX3 2015 (Prix de la Photographie Paris – the top photography competition in Paris).

I will be creating more works over the summer, including a second book, all to be shown at the exhibit.

 

Regardless of the outcome of this campaign, the rewards are guaranteed. My goal is to give you something of value whilst putting a bit toward making this exhibit a reality.

Show fees, promotional and booth material, helpers, transport, insurance, payment devices, are among the hard costs that require funding.

My first donation goal was met, thanks to several generous (and very patient) donors and so I was able to get the application process started and complete the book.

I have come a long way in many ways to make this dream of exhibiting in London come true. Now is the time for me to seize this unique opportunity to connect with an audience here in my new home. Thank you so much for considering a contribution to this effort.

 

If you would like to help by ordering a copy of my book Becoming : Transience and Transmutation , please visit blurb.com and search ‘wendy farrow’. It is a hard cover 7 x 7 inch book of 60 pages, full bleed images on Premium Lustre paper (148 gsm). My sculpture book is also there and 2 eBooks if they are more to your tatse. Thank you for your support!

Donation Rewards

£45.00

For £45 I am offering a one of a kind genuine gold leaf and silver leaf hand sculpted pendant.

 

This pendant is part of the Touchstone series. The term touchstone originally comes from a certain type of stone that was used to measure the genuineness of gold or silver by how it leaves its mark on the touchstone. These pieces are made with 23.75 ct and 22 ct gold leaf, genuine silver leaf and palladium leaf. At each stage of sculpting, sanding, painting, leafing and varnishing, I use my fingers to ensure each piece has an inviting form and texture.

The sculpting material is reinforced with steel and must be formed quickly due to a short curing time. I then file and sand it to the final desired shape. The shape has a way of informing the tones, the leaf palette and the highlights and shadows that I create with the gilding, the paint, and ultimately the layering and blending of the various elements.

The final coating which protects the leaf from tarnishing is non-toxic. Each of these pieces has 13 stages on average and take about 8 to 10 days from start to finish to create due to the full curing of the sculpting material, the drying of oil paint (some have paint under the gilding) the leaf layers and final coatings.

This particular pendant measures 33.5 x 9 mm – a photograph of it on my fingers is shown in the group for scale.

The price includes a 20 inch (50 cm) or 18 inch sterling silver snake chain and a beautiful long pile black velvet pendant box (shown in the last photograph).(Shipping is to be paid later)
