Some of those stones I talked about last week have found their way into my shop. Each with a shadow of a leaf imprinted upon it. Stitched with the very same thread that bound the leaf and stone together during the long winter. Coupled now in a different way.
Each is a worn grey, turned so by an afterdip of iron to highlight the color the tannins left behind.
When held in the right light you can see those permanent leaf shadows upon them. Reminders of the seasonal change.
In my shop now as a set of three because I couldn't bear to split them up.
