Chemical Nature

As with snow globes bought from tourist destinations, the contents of these glass vials serve to preserve a memory. My intent was to capture some of the color and beauty in the given landscape through creating pigments found in the flora of the grounds. Collecting various flowers, grasses, berries, and roots; pigments were extracted by adding water and using a mortar and pestle to release color.
