David Silverman Sculpture Featured at U.S. Botanic Garden

April 15, 2012 6:51 pm

A sculpture by David Silverman was one of only 43 sculptures chosen from about 2,000 submissions to be part of an exhibit at the U.S. Botanic Garden.

The exhibit, “Flora: Growing Inspirations,” runs from May 23-October 12. It is located on the Conservatory Terrace, East Gallery of the U.S. Botanic Garden.

“Hoya 1″—clay and white slip.

This is a ceramic abstraction of the Hoya coronaria blossom. Hoyas bloom in umbels, clusters of flowers grouped on one stem. For this piece, I focused on just one. Having collected hoya plants for more than thirty years and being a ceramic sculptor, I merged both passions in this creation.

Mr. Silverman, a member of the Washington Sculptors Group, is currently a docent at the U.S. Botanic Garden, working there every weekend for the last three or four months.
