In February I worked with Mary Dodd in Florida on a collaborative project based on found natural forms. As I was unable to take the seed pods with me I made photographs to remind me of the combinations.
The way I presented these seed pods was inspired by Japanese art. I realised by good chance we were near enough to visit The Morikami Japanese cultural garden in Florida. This was a real treat and I feel is the start of further work for me based on Japanese art and design in general.
I travelled on to The Cayman Islands and worked with David Bridgeman on a new project. I still collected seed pods and photographed the results..this time I added a found object, a part of a shoe, which started me thinking about adding man made objects to the collections.
When I returned to Mallorca the idea continues with the flowers, seed pods and leaves from the flowering trees in Palma , Mallorca
