Oh The Trees!


Set of three coastal treasures, in Phormium Tenax cocoon baskets.



At the beginning of March we had the pleasure of soaking in the magic of some of Scotland's forests.

Although there are small pockets of woodland in the Orkney Islands, most of the landscape is treeless, so it was a real treat to walk amongst the towering trees and press our hands against their textured bark.

I found these bark pieces whilst walking along the shoreline at Dunoon, on the same trip. I have matched them with a limpet that echos their textured surface and links them back to the shoreline that brought them to me.

Each piece has been carefully cocooned in Phormium Tenax fibre, which I gather here on the islands and strip by hand.


Size : Large bark piece 12 x 4 x 1cm, smaller bark piece 5.5 x 4.5 x 1cm, limpet 5 x 5.5 x 3cm
