Taos Morning Glory
Dwarfed by an elevation of 7000' and minimal rain, the morning glories in Taos, New Mexico bloom beautifully in adverse conditions. The almost heart shaped leaves unfold and lie flat as it heats up in the afternoon. The buds furl out of circular cups. The flowers have less depth of throat than other varieties. Each piece in the series interprets a real plant drawn and photographed on location. Scale of the circlets and cuff bracelets is life-size. Some larger variations inspired by its Maryland cousins are creeping in as belt buckles and circlets.
