It took me a while to understand the appeal and connection that I felt to these little pieces of art from the moment I first saw them. I think it’s to do with the every day made beautiful, the worship of nature, a celebration of simplicity and a special sense of appreciating there’s something in the act of giving over time to create something that has honour but no practical purpose except it’s own sense of wonder.

I also think, on a subliminal level, they remind me of the sea urchins we go diving for in Greece.
For objects so small, their voice is big.
