Tomato Partners

At the end of summer, heirloom tomatoes populate the farmers’ market, tempting us to pick them up and take them home. Quirky, appealing and flavorful beyond imagination, heirlooms are a tomato lover’s darling. Each of these eight tomatoes were sculpted independently and stood as free-spirited singles on my work table. Then, as if a dating service took over in the night, they partnered up and became couples!

The pieces nest together, a dimple here embracing a curve there, comfortable in the presence of each other. They also stand alone, a single form representing the quintessence of summer.

They have enough style to strut down the center of the dining table. I imagine very small renditions as components in garden-inspired jewelry and much larger ones as familiar companions in the garden.
