Jane Bevan
Natural materials

Festival: 2017

I create sculptures, 2D collage and vessels using found, natural materials, ranging from silver birch bark, hawthorn and sycamore seeds, to feathers and acorn cups which I gather each day. I look for materials that are often trodden on and discarded despite the wealth of colour, pattern and texture they offer.

The traditional, assembly techniques used are twining, tying, coiling and stitching. The making process itself is painstaking and slow, designs must adapt to the irregularities and tiny imperfections of the materials.
