The exhibition provided an impetus to find a new way of working with different materials and processes. The nature table gave a loose framework for exploration.
Materials include copper wire, silver and gold plated copper wire, copper, brass and silver sheet. I have used textile and basketry techniques, and basic metalworking skills. Nothing is a copy of the thing I picked up – it is what happened through play and manipulation of materials .
