Leaves of the tree

Here is a selection of photos of recent items Imade. I have had an idea rattling around my head for a while about using a leaf or a selection to make up the body of a tree. Doing the paint work structure painted and fired I chose birch leafs and arranged them to make the body foliage of the tree. I think it worked really nice, although it was hard to arrange them to create a natural shape.

The other ones feature engraving and selections of autumn leaves.  At the moment the sun comes through the window for about an hour each day so I don’t have much of a window to get photos of everything.  Its nice to show them with the natural light illuminating the leaves, and the engraving comes to life with the sunlight.

I don’t put everything up on the web page, just selected hangers so if you don’t see something on the web page you like feel free to contact me.
