Spring Tide – Seven


A traditional stone fishing net weight, in a Phormium Tenax Cocoon basket.



A spring tide brings such riches to the shoreline. Exposing stretches of beach, that were out of reach before and revealing a wealth of textures and treasures to explore.

This seventh cocoon basket in my Spring Tide Collection, holds an old fishing net weight, made from stone and found in Burwick, South Ronaldsay.

The basket is made from Phormium Tenax fibres, which I gather locally and strip by hand.

Size : Approx. 10.5 x 9.5 x 2cm
