"Geometric forms of varying shapes and sizes have been hunted to provide a visual appeal to you and a sensual appeal to the plant that calls it home." Too often I was coming in contact with people having plastic/fake/unreal/ugly/lifeless plants in their inner-city apartments and suburban shelters. I bit of holiday boredom and a reminiscing to some of my early woodwork I did at high school, led me to crafting the Cypress Pine Planter series. I investigated and was intrigued by terrariums and their encapsulating nature of such natural earthly beauty.
This partnered with the epic discovery of succulents and how they don't take anymore than they need when it comes to water, making them so versatile and hardy. I put my ideas to paper and eventually to the workshop (the shed with a table out the back) where I continue to pursue my design ambitions. I treat each piece I make as its own piece of art, for each planter is unique in character, telling different stories through the grain and through the shading of its colours.
