There is a journey of a thought from the thinker via a flower, a stem, a tree, paper, a book, to the mind of the reader.
We find a certain beauty in this journey and wanted to celebrate it with the start of the school year which rather aptly coincides with Autumn and harvest festival. This is the time where we reap the fruits our labours and Nature rewards us for our tender loving care over the Spring and summer.
In the same way, our children learn at school and pave the way for the future with a direct correlation between what we teach them and what they then do with this knowledge as they go out into the world.
We used hard back books to represent this journey because we feel there is a beauty in the love and care that went into the making of them that is possibly missing in modern education.
With the current turmoil in the world today we wanted to remember the importance of education in democracy and remind ourselves to put our tender love and care into the education of our children.
This is part of a series of works celebrating nature, sustainability, environmental awareness and craftsmanship.
