Bloom is a one-of-a kind, glazed ceramic sculpture by local artist Alyssa Follansbee. A surrealist interpretation of a traditional portrait bust, the floral sculptures blooming out of the head represent creative thought, while also referencing traditional associations of femininity with floral imagery. In this interpretation, the creative force is intertwined with that which is feminine.
