Laurie Powell, Sheffield, 1997.

Living and working in Northumberland.

All the materials I work with are grown, foraged or collected from the surrounding region to try and create a material culture that is both indigenous and sustainable. By living in proximity to the sources of our food and material objects, I believe we can live less damaging and more meaningful lives.

EVERYTHING WE NEED IS IN THE SOIL. PARADISE IS A GARDEN.
