Porcelain birch seeds with 22ct gold detailing
Inspired by the positive and intrepid nature of pioneer species, this sculptural installation is made of 69 hand-formed porcelain Birch seeds, echoing the 69 species of Birch at Stone Lane Gardens. They create a sense of the promise and potential that abounds in nature, and its insatiable drive to keep growing.
