The seed pod design is inspired from a magnificent Kowhai tree at the front of our house. These pods get scattered and blown all over our property. I love discovering tiny little mini kowhai shrubs that pop up out of nowhere. The Tui's love this tree so much in Spring. More about that in Spring! I have many drawings of these pods, but wanted to create very simple, playful design, so in the end it was all about the curves!
"Pattern is everywhere we go and it's in everything we do
It’s there when we look up, down and all around, outside ourselves and deep within
Pattern speaks a powerful universal language that connects us all
We’re living in an age of overload and complexity
The systems we are a part of are failing
We’ve become so focused on the ‘I’ not the ‘we’
We have lost our sense of connection to our environment, each other and to ourselves
It’s time to wake up and reconnect the dots"
