Artefacts (from the latin 'the skill to make') are usually of historical or cultural interest, but what beauty has failed to survive due to the transience of the materials used?

'My artistic practice is rooted in experimentation with natural processes and the idea of place. Three key aims are sustainability using localized resources, trying to minimize my artistic footprint and engaging the viewer in discovering beauty in the transient.
This concept of place, the bi-products of eco dyeing, and my fixation with craftsmen’s tools has led to the development of a new group of work, ‘Artefact’ which has evolved into ‘nest’, ‘implements’ and ‘adornment’, created with found objects and natural foliage, both homegrown and gathered along the towpath.'
