Inspired by the Myrtle Wattle Leaf, this work explores the form of the leaf through the use of metal, embroidery threads and local recycled textiles. The work uses ethically sourced sustainable materials, including recycled yabby nets to draw attention to the transition of colours on natural plant forms.
