Book Leaves Dancing Torn book pages, string, beads Trees are so kinetic, waving in the wind. This little thread of paper also spins so elegantly and effortlessly. It once was a tree. Bracelet for Tree The woollen ‘bracelet’ etched with leaf prints wraps around a branch as adornment just as human arms are circled with decorative rings of silver. Tiny Leafy Printed Prayer Flags Little linen flags printed with leaves and flowers celebrate the sacred liveliness of a botanical garden.
A little about myself I enjoy challenging myself with the mysteries of botanical printing on natural cloth. At heart I am eclectic and a boundary rider, patching together unlikely things. Repurposing, reinventing, recycling, reimagining, recreating – these are the creative tools I draw on and follow to interesting ends. I hope they offer a taste of joy and a new appreciation of wonder for this beautiful world. Instagram @otwaygleaner
