The sight of vibrantly colored sidewalk micro-gardens, and the joy they bring, are an eagerly-anticipated spring phenomenon, a joint gift of nature and our generous, talented neighbors. Within the constraints of a few square feet, framed by ornamental ironwork, these little early modernist style compositions of hue, form and texture are conjured from miniature tulips, narcissus, snowdrops, crocus and periwinkles, all interspersed with electric spring-green leaves. Fellow New Yorker Henry Dunay, a lifelong jeweler, champion of handmade work, and recipient of numerous awards, says that an important aspect of his art has been to capture a se
nse of natural flow, and to speak to our subconscious minds. He succeeds brilliantly here, with this joyful evocation of the natural jewels of spring.
