The tradition of sewing is used to join leaves from the same tree into a unified whole. Time is of essence; the leaves are supple when collected from the ground and stitched together but are soon transformed when dry into a fragile surface. The hand crafted work uses regenerative materials from nature to explore the fragile balance between innovation, transformation and sustainability.
