Bloom Evolve

Bloom have been evolving to include more contrasting interior/exterior colors and patterns.  The forms are also becoming more varied and asymmetrical.  They are all one-of-a-kind works, but they are all of one 'species' that explore the theme of things hidden and revealed.  At my new website is a full portfolio of Bloom.
