LEGO Flowers for Max


I was asked on Monday if I could create a model for the family of a very special little boy named Maxwell Harris who would have turned 10 tomorrow. Unfortunately Max passed away last week after a boating accident.

Max loved LEGO bricks. It was his favorite toy. On their family blog Harris Beach Bums it says “A holiday would not be a holiday without Legos.”

Max’s aunt Ashley asked me to create a bouquet of flowers as a gift for the family.

Ashley said this about Max:

His true love was legos. He probably would have grown up to be an artist such as yourself. He owned almost every set of legos and could create the most fabulous pieces of art

My heart goes out to the Harris family in their time of loss.
