Description Care Shipping Returns

The inspiration to create these strawberries came from a chapter about them in Robin Wall Kimmerer’s book Braiding Sweetgrass. She shares wise teachings of the Anishnaabe people, and describes as a scientist how strawberries spread and grow in their environment. The image of strawberries at the end of the season sending out runners to establish new plants left a lasting impression. And so, these strawberries model the gift of growth and of reaching out to establish deeper connections.

A cluster of summer strawberries shown in full ripeness, with a few leaves and a blossom to suggest that more berries are on their way. 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 suggests a clear summer sky. 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.

dimensions: 6.5” wide x 10” tall
