About Ken Shelf
Ken's experience with plant art began decades ago with creative vegetable gardening and continues with his exploration of the disintegration and reintegration of nature with itself. In his endless quest for interesting planting vessels, he has planted teapots, popcorn poppers, electrical boxes, watering cans, shoes, bicycle rims, bird-feeders, sea shells, grain mill belts, coal cans, potato and onion baskets, and a metal Hoosier flour bin for his wife's 40th birthday. Ken also plays drums, dances and howls in the moonlight.
