Spring Tide – Three


A sea-worn fragment of pottery 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 third cocoon basket in my Spring Tide Collection, holds a sea-worn piece of pottery, found on a beach that we call Whale Beach, Burray. It is a lovely size and shape for turning in your hand.

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

Size : Approx. 5 x 5 x 1cm
