Elements of Nature

Updated: Apr 30, 2023


Every aspect of nature is beautiful, from the mud and the worms to the tall trees in the summer breeze, over the summer of 2022 I created this handmade book titled "Elements of Nature", its inspired by an encyclopaedia. I spent my summer days foraging around my garden in search for beautiful and not so beautiful things I could use to turn into art.



It's good to be resourceful when making art, to use what yo have available around you. I am very grateful to have a very creative family living in the country side so I have many materials surrounding me to create artwork from, natural and non-natural.



For my book I used recycled paper which was sewn together, and I filled the book with different things from the garden, things I could potentially use in the future to make art with. Things like seed pods of all different shapes, to petals of all colours, to mud and berries and grass. The twine wrapped around the book are stinging nettle fibres I dried our and braided together to make string. All of these elements of nature have the opportunity to become much more than they already are.


"From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity" Edvard Munch
