Natural Inspirations

Travel gave an opportunity to look at different art and craft techniques and ideas . The use of natural materials figures predominantly in my own work so I was delighted to find these interpretations using branches, vines and leaves. Above are seats made to represent the traditional Irish boat, the coracle . These were at Newgrange that amazing prehistoric site in the Boyne Valley of Ireland.

A few days previously we had seen the living inspiration when in Norfolk.

Even more excited to return to Queensland and discover this piece had been created on Mount Tamborine.

The names of the artists were not displayed and should they contact me I would very much like to acknowledge them .

  1. How wonderful!I quite often see ‘temporary’art work along the beach,constructed of drift wood and/or rocks,and feel so thankful the artists have shared their vision,sometimes in the most isolated places.As do you!:)
