Set of five cocoon baskets.
'Serendipity', is a set of five cocoon baskets - a mussel shell, two pieces of terracotta, a limpet shell and a fragment of blue glazed sea pottery.
When so many things in life seem to be tangled, complicated and needing lots of planning, the process of walking and finding objects along the shore is a wonderful serendipitous antidote, to all of those stresses.
I find that collecting these little gifts from the sea is as soothing as gathering the plants for my basketry fibres and gives me the connection to my work that I find so important.
