Place: Sweden. Material: Wax and dries leaves. Category: Small sized objects made for a natural surrounding in the Out Doors. Concept: Nature has inspired designers and artists for hundreds of years. Many are the examples where nature has been used as a model for artistic expression. That which an artist sees as nature applies together with the ideas of function and aesthetics, will produce the finished product, the art. Maybe the experience of nature will be reduced from its vastness of scenarios into a limitation of aesthetics only? Limited in the sense that the experience will be subordinated to the aesthetic demands of the artist. Land jewellery plays with ideas and also with the space in between experience and the process, a game were esthetically values are applied directly into nature. The materials used are dried leaves dipped in wax.
