I am obsessed with the medium of kelp and have spent the past fourteen years understanding how to work the kelp that occasionally washes on to the beach where I spend each summer on the East Coast of Tasmania. Kelp is beautiful to work with when it is fresh – very much like soft leather. I work quickly to create each piece as the kelp soon dries out or deteriorates, depending on the weather. Kelp shrinks by a third of its size as it hardens. I turn eighty this year and am delighted to share my work with you.
