Bonsai, Bound

2018, STUDIO

One in a series of embroidery thread wrapped deceased bonsais.

These works sit alongside larger-scale environmental interventions Bound.

Nature crafted and re-crafted. Value diminished through death, raised again through re-attention and the binding of limbs in embroidery thread.

The work draws together interests in trees and ecology, materials, in craft, industry and site through translation and transformation.
