Many Hands Make Light Work

Layers of wee marigolds, cast in bone china and diminishing in size, tinkle like china cups in the dish-bowl as they caress each other and pass the burden of the workload back and forth. A range of soft pinks, yellows and greens can be achieved using coloured bulbs alluding to the acidic hues of rubber gloves , diffused and made more bearable by the translucency of the porcelain.
