When walking the dog I enjoy collecting grasses, leaves and seedheads to use to impress into clay, such as my Houseleek planters. I have also made a series of small tiles using a variety of natural materials to impress into the surface of the clay. I then wired together the tiles and hung them from one of my many pieces of driftwood to create the wall hanging shown below.

I also made a few small hangings, which sold straight away.

With ferns being one of my favourite plants it is not surprising that I often use parts of the plants to embellish my work. In the small hangings above I impressed both parts of tree fern fronds and new unfurling fern fronds to decorate the tiles. I have also used fern fronds to decorate some large platters.
