Löhr's work brought to mind Jan Yager's "Tiara of Useful Knowledge." Last year, I attended a lecture Yager gave at an exhibition of american craft in OKC. Her distinctive jewelry incorporates portrayals of city flora (as in weeds poking up through sidewalk cracks). I love how these two artists find and illuminate the unique beauty and power in these marginalized garden invaders, and I must say- allergens have never been so appealing.
P.S. Happy Earth Day, earthlings!
