Feuillemort is French for the colour of a dyeing leaf. When I came across this word it resonated as I attempt in my work to capture the intransigence of nature.

Along with my blackfired ceramics I further investigate recycling in nature with my tree portraits. They are comprised of shards from my black fire vases and tableware. Rather than discarding the broken pieces I re-use them as the body of trees in my mixed media landscapes.
