Iris Gallery

The Iris Idea goals:

Create 102 larger than life irises and debut all of them in the spring of 2025.

Create a network of caretakers that will foster an iris during the creation phase.

Bring all caretakers and their irises together for their debut and to celebrate the Joy we have all achieved.

Thank you caretakers.
Joy becomes more available with every iris.

Each iris roughly measures 9” x 9” and are constructed from one gallon plastic water jugs. The petals are cut, painted with alcohol inks, thermoformed, and finally assembled into an iris. Now this former container has entered into it's butterfly stage.

Individual irises take a few days to make, and I anticipate completing three a week. Each one will be colorfully painted, inspired by real irises but also by whatever brings me joy.

Please choose your iris and then fill out the Caretaker Form. Available irises will have a number listed below.
