Flowers and Fungus

LISA WEST

"Most of the things that I make are influenced by the flora and fauna around me and these pieces are a continuation of this. 'Flowers & Fungus' is loosely based on real flowers and actual plants but with a large element of artistic license thrown in. The use of unprocessed materials such as shell, stone and fine gold also influences what the finished piece might be. The distinctive curve of a shell may suggest one thing; the colour and patterns on a lump of stone might be reminiscent of something else."
