I love slate.

nest your kindness - handmade felt nest structure

Nest your kindness
hand felt nest structures made with local fleece, paper, copper wire, honesty seeds.
I have been thinking upon 'shoddy' & the traditional re-use of materials with it's own practical aesthetic. Plus how tradition & words soon get  re-emphasised and forgotten.
West Yorkshire was where Shoddy was invented.  Re-cycling remains an epicentre with Batley, West Yorkshire. 

Nest your kindness
I have been researching physical nests, the variations on structure, materials and the use for nurturing & for the cycle of life.
