The tendrils of grapes or peas are nature's spirals. The natural grape tendrils from which these pieces were cast were collected near Laura's studio from some wild grapes growing along the Patuxent River which runs into the Chesapeake Bay. The grapes these vines produce aren't any you'd want to eat - birds like them. In the fall they form loose clusters of tiny pea-like fruit and the grapes turn color from green to turquoise to indigo to mauve.
