Quills & sea urchins

Depending on the animal they derive from, quills come in such dramatically different shapes. (There are six: sea urchins, birds, porcupines, echidnas, anteaters & hedgehogs.) I have glass jars full of sea urchin quills in shades of purple, dusky pink and deep aubergine, often with white-ringed tips. They feel and look like unglazed porcelain, and when knocked together, make a beautiful musical chime-y sound. I admire the stripe and colour (and sharp and protective) elements of quills, both from urchins & the porcupine families. I have loose bundles & jars of them in many shapes & sizes, as my fascination doesn't seem to wane.

Quiver

A surfer's collection of surfboards. My love of the sea takes shape in many of the pieces I collect and create, so when the chance for me to collaborate with iconic surf brand McTavish arose, I jumped at it. The patterns and symbols I loved, such as Shibori, Flmaingo, Giraffe & Suzani were immortalised on the coolest (and most user-friendly) longboards – surf's up! Shop a couple of the designs here.
