I was honored to have been asked to participate in this amazing collaboration filled with so much talent.

Our common theme was “Gardens of the World” We have created sugar art celebrating the beauty of English, French, Italian, Japanese and Spanish Gardens. Gardens of the World. RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
My piece was inspired by the Andalusian style gardens of Old Spain. I love the warm feeling of terracotta and stucco along with accents of artistic bright colorful tiles such as cobalt blue, yellow and rusty orange. In deciding my elements, the first thing that came to my mind was a fountain, that was a must. Then the colors that inspire me in such a happy way were the blue, yellow and rusty orange. The terracotta of course plays a very important part in a Spanish Garden and was definitely an element I could not leave out. The only hesitation I had was whether or not to use beige stucco or white. I wanted to bring all of these elements together to showcase my piece.
