Discover the Art Installation created for our London Boutique by papermaker and artist Veronica Hodges.
Nectar of Life
Papermaker and artist Veronica Hodges created an extraordinary Art Installation during Christmas season in our Boutique in London Mayfair.
Veronica Hodges aims to combine a visual experience with a story of which she feels is important to tell. “Meeting with Kat Florence and learning how she works inspired me when creating the installation. I wanted to tell her story, and one of the themes that truly stayed with me was the history behind the gemstones; each and every piece is unique" says Veronica.
Veronica Hodges’ work tells a story of reaching out for a precious moment or a special occasion that makes a difference to us as individuals.
The story being told here is that of a hummingbird reaching out for its nectar. On one side, there are the stars that lighten up the bird’s path, on the other side, there is a thicket that could make it lose its way.
To put this vision into context, the hummingbird is representative of us as individuals being bound between polarities when making important choices. We must not forget that each step we take is bound to a history before us, and we can form our lives by the pathways we create within it.
May your path in life become a pattern you are proud of. That, for me, is what Nectar of Life is about.Veronica Hodges
