471st Balloon Sculpture, Hydrangea Column


I saw a Hydrangea Column made by Italian balloon artist Andre De Oliveira and I knew I had to replicate it and make it for my mother for Mother’s Day. He is amazing and so inspiring.

I had to use a different underlying structure than he did but the result I think came out the same.  I made it for my mother who absolutely loves hydrangeas. My mother is battling fatal bone cancer and so this will sadly be my last Mother’s Day gift to her.

She just loved it!

It was a labor of love and Andre was touched and delighted with my replication. He is such a lovely person.

I love how this art is meaningfully connecting me to people from all around the world.

This came out to be about 7 ft tall.

Happy Twisting
