Fall of the Leaf

‘Margaret, are you grieving

Over goldengrove unleaving?’

Gerard Manley Hopkins

Originally designed for the children’s handling collection at Nature in Art museum, near Gloucester, these leaf dishes were inspired by the way some fallen leaves gradually become skeletal as winter progresses, revealing the lacy beauty of their vein structure.

Fused and slumped glass with sandblast or enamel. Several colour and shape variations.
