Beyond The Barriers – Trio


Phormium Tenax cocoon baskets with sea pottery, driftwood and limpet.



We live on the island of South Ronaldsay, one of five islands connected by the Churchill Barriers. These causeways, made during WW2, mean that we can travel back and forth and have lots more coastline to explore. All of the found treasures in this trio, were collected beyond the Barriers. Each one has been cocooned in its own Phormium Tenax, coiled basket.
