Knoppie means button in Africaans, and refers to conophytum, a plant that grows in South Africa and Namibia. I love buttons and I am seduced by the small scale, coloring, and, above all, the shape, of a conophytum.  Lithops is another plant that possesses similar appealing qualities. You will not find a scientifically accurate depiction of either in my small scale sculptures, but these tiny buttons are a big source of inspiration for me.
