A-tisket, a-tasket, a flower-filled LEGO basket

One of my LEGO building goals that I’m perpetually chasing is the creation of natural forms like plants in the blocky medium. And picea74 really shows me how to do it with this darling basket of flowers. First focusing on the wicker container, the weave has the perfect alternation of curved slopes to evoke the dry rustling of reed and cane. I particularly like how the builder handled the corners, adding to the structural integrity of the work by breaking the pattern, but doing so in a manner that still feels basket-like. The organics in this vessel are quite impressive, with the blue and pink carnations acting as paragons of “floral architecture.” And the use of sprues from the old tri-leaf part add a glorious bit of vine-ery to the vessel’s contents.
