Since we live here in the arctic, flowers are kind of scarce. So I decided to make AnnMarie a flower that would last. It is made from junk that I salvaged from a few local construction projects. The leaves and petals are formed from 24ga galvanized sheet metal, the stem is a piece of 3/4" EMT, and the base on the floor is cut from 1/2" steel plate. C.O.
