Heliconia Growing

This glass art installation, called "Heliconia Growing," can be found inside local bookstore Village Books. It is by Bellingham artist Christopher Morrison. Heliconia is a genus of flowering tropical plant-- the type of which doesn't grow in this area, so it's nice to have a cool-climate sculpture instead!

  1. Beautiful plant, beautiful sculpture. It also reminds me of one of my favorite books when I was a ...growing teenager, Helliconia, from Brian Aldiss

  2. Nice sculpture. I was in LaConner a couple of weeks ago watching a glass blower at work. Fascinating stuff!

  4. What a bookstore this must be! And I'm so glad you're in there, supporting them. It's a tough time for booksellers.

  5. It is a wonderful bookstore! We are lucky to have a strong buy-local community that will hopefully keep my favorite bookstore out of danger.
