A set of seven tiny treasures in Phormium Tenax cocoon baskets.



It seems that many of the things that we are working towards here in our little island home, can all really be summed up by one word - balance.

Working hard to provide for our family, but also making time to enjoy the times we spend together; repairing and restoring the old farmhouse and buildings, but also saving and respecting what has stood for so long; squeezing as much as we can into life, but remembering to take time to rest and heal.

It's a tricky business, a practice, that we constantly have to work on.

It is much easier to achieve balance in these little sets of treasures, even though the pieces of pottery have been made by different people, at different times and I have mixed them with nature's own treasures. They come together as though that is how they were always meant to be. A balance of colour, form, texture and pattern. So satisfying, so restful!

'Balance' is a set of seven tiny treasures each cocooned in its own Phormium Tenax basket. The treasures were all collected on my island walks and the Phormium was gathered from a friends garden.

These pieces are smaller than my usual sets of cocoon baskets and have been priced accordingly .
