The common name of this flower “forget me not” rings out like a bell — its chime is an instruction. It asks us to ponder what is remembered and what is forgotten, and how remembrance and love sit together.
A cluster of forget-me-nots shown in full bloom, with a few small buds suggesting its future growth. This is a handmade item. The leaves, blossoms and buds are all made with handpainted crepe paper, and wired for shape and longevity.
It is displayed on a wood frame painted in a shade of blue that both surrounds and extends the presence of this diminutive but unforgettable flower. The edges of the frame are painted with a lustrous gold wax, and it hangs simply on the wall with a keyhole on the back. Each piece comes signed with a gold wax seal on the reverse, embossed with the Golden Age logo.
