This is a unique, hand made, one of a kind item created from found natural fibres and organic elements.
The driftwood is from a beach scavenge at Romney Marsh (Southern UK) and has been cleaned and dried for your pleasure. The seedpods and peach stones are remnants of scavenging from my grandmother's garden in Uruguay many moons ago, where she taught me all things have value and their own kind of beauty. The ceramic beads were a mindful outlet from motherhood after the birth of my first child, and made from terracotta and stoneware clays, hand glazed and fired in a community kiln. Everything within this piece of art is 100% handmade by me, with loving attention to detail.
The art of weaving is a mindful craft that grounds and engages you and I hope to convey that sensory delight when you feel my work. I wanted to make something wonderfully rustic that people would want to reach out and touch, as a kind of antidote to online living! Perhaps the materials and process will inspire you to create something to go with it?
